The six-story 17th Ave. Residence Hall is a 600-bed facility with suite accommodations for students as well as private apartments for advising staff. Each floor features shared semi-private restrooms with showers, three community lounges, study spaces and a floor-lounge for large-group gatherings.
The main level includes a 350-seat dining facility that includes multiple cooking stations where food prepare fresh for the residents. The main level also includes classroom space, a technology center and a student lounge. The basement features laundry facilities, music practice rooms, a game room and a community kitchen. The University required the implementation of best practices in sustainable building design.
The project was designed to meet the State of Minnesota B3 Guidelines. To meet those demands we employed several energy-saving mechanical and electrical systems, including a variable rate exhaust system for each kitchen hood, make-up air energy recovery units, a rainwater reclamation system, daylight lighting controls, occupancy sensors and LED lighting.
