UA residence halls now under construction.
Nov 29, 2017
The University of Arkansas Stadium Drive Residence Halls are now under construction! We are honored to be a part of the design collaborative, including Leers Weinzapfel Associates Architects, Inc., Mackey Mitchell Architects, and OLIN creating the nation's first large-scale mass timber residence hall project and living learning setting.
While most of the university’s campus is located atop Fayetteville’s McIlroy Hill, the new residence halls occupy a prominent place at its base on the southern end of campus, marking the start of a larger living learning district. The project’s linear 4-acre site slopes from north to south. Set within this relatively small space, a housing group with a serpentine band of student rooms defines three protected and distinctive courtyard spaces. Configured to create a dynamic environment that fosters student collaboration and interactive learning focused on architecture, design, and the arts, the project is shaped by the concept of “a cabin in the woods” nestled in a densely planted buffer zone that provides a new university gateway.
Expected completion for the project is fall 2019.
