Livingston Alexander House


  • Livingston Alexander House, our new residence hall that was designed to help first-year students adjust to college and easily become part of their own community, is almost finished.

    The freshman-only hall will open this fall. The $17 million, three-story building will house 170 students.

    Students will live in double rooms within a section of 24-36 students. This will enable each section to have its own special programming and give students opportunities to learn outside the classroom.

    Each section also will have its own study lounge and men’s and women’s bathrooms with private showers and toilets.

    A community lounge and a fitness area will be located in the center of the second and third floors, giving students many opportunities to socialize and make friends.

    Livingston Alexander House will be an alcohol-free environment and fully ADA accessible. The building is also the first LEED building on campus:

    • It is expected the building will consume 30% less energy.
    • All plumbing fixtures will consume less water.
    • Power supplied to the building will come from renewable sources.  
    • Construction materials consisted of recycled and recyclable content.
    • Wood used in the building was harvested from sustainable forests.
    • The furniture was made from natural and recycled materials.
