Southern New Hampshire University’s Kingston Hall is a 382-bed residence hall. The new residence hall replaces three of the University’s aged buildings with one, student-centric living, learning environment. To enhance the first- and second-year student experience and encourage socialization, residential wings are organized in 16 and 20-bed pods which include shared bathrooms and living rooms. The first floor is open to the greater campus community providing an array of amenities including: game room, private and public study spaces, computer lab, outdoor patio, and multi-purpose classroom. The residence hall has an open-style kitchen area where students can convene, make meals together, and connect with their peers. All design decisions focused on the SNHU’s goal of facilitating a sense of belonging and making the college life transition successful for the individual student. The building is targeting LEED Silver.
