A new $12 million residence hall remains on target for occupancy the start of the 2010 fall semester. The new student housing will accommodate 192 upperclassmen in 32 units.
Each apartment is designed for six residents, with three bedrooms and a shared kitchen and living area. The four-story building has laundry facilities on each floor, as well as a study area on each level equipped with study desks, wireless internet, and computer workstations.
Three thousand square feet of community space on the first floor and flowing up into a second story loft will offer an additional gathering spot for Dordt students. The two-story open space concept plan offers a floor to ceiling fireplace and movable glass partitions, with surfaces finished in wood, brick, and polished concrete.
This lounging area will be equipped with a coffee and snack bar, as well as a portable stage, sound equipment, and many lighting options for gatherings such as Comedy Club, open microphone nights, small bands, and other performances.
