Enticing Seniors to Live Among and Become Part of the Campus’ Residential Community

Worcester Polytechnic Institute, East Hall, Worcester, MA

Seeking both to increase the number of beds on campus and to attract upper-class-students back to campus, Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s LEED Gold-certified, five-story facility provides 232 beds in a mix of single- and double-room suites and studios, while continuing the streetscape established by neighboring buildings and compliments the character of the campus and surrounding area. The compactly designed and configured East Hall plan features central courtyards on the building’s east and west sides, while a three-level, 220-car parking structure provides the site with a landscaped edge and a 40-foot-wide “art walk.”

A palletized roof system, located on Energy Star roofing, and storm water monitoring/testing station located on the ground-floor lobby educate students and the public about green design, enrich the institute’s environmental science curriculum and conducts green roof technology research.
