WSU says work on the five-story residence hall will start soon after Memorial Day. The facility, which will be constructed between Cessna Stadium and the Morrison Hall administration building, will house about 770 students and include a 400-seat dining hall. Basically, the building is going in on what is now the parking lot south of Cessna Stadium.
Here are a few highlights
- 782 total beds
- The far majority of the dorm room floor plans will account for two different styles of rooms:
- The “One Room Doubles” seem to have two different layout options, both pictured below. In short, it looks like these rooms will be somewhat similar to what is currently available in Fairmount, with the addition of one extra sink in each room (thus each resident would get their own sink). These rooms don’t seem to have a door that closes to provide a completely private bedroom for an individual resident.
- The “Quad” or 4-2-1 option, also pictured below, is what we had originally heard the most about. This is where each resident (four in a suite) would have their own small private bedroom with a door that closes, they’d share a sink and bathroom with one other resident, and then a common living space with two more residents.
- There will be a 400 seat dining hall
