New College House

New College House,
Hill Field

Location:
3300 Block of Chestnut Street

Phase:
Completed

Planning Strategy:
The New College House establishes a gateway to campus, as it is located at a key pedestrian approach from the northeastern corner of the University. It is now the first building one encounters when coming from the 30th Street Amtrak and Regional Rail Station, and it fronts onto Woodland Walk, one of the three main pedestrian paths identified in the Campus Development Plan. A new public open space called the 'Lifted Lawn' enlivens the center of this important residential quadrangle.

Program:
A new 350-bed College House, including residential advisors, faculty, and house master suites. The ground floor features common amenities such as dining and social spaces.

Total Project Cost:
$127,000,000

Area:
