About the Project

Jesse H. Ames Suites is designed to house 240 sophomore students in clusters of 4-8 students.  Three clusters form a pod of 22 students.  Each pod shares a kitchenette with private cubbies and living area with a large screen TV.  Students living in Ames Hall have programs designed to meet their unique needs.  

The Ann Lydecker Living & Learning Center is a gathering space for residence hall students.  The fireplace gathering space is perfect for late night conversations or board games.  Smaller conference style rooms are designed for smaller study groups and the larger conference style rooms, complete with a small catering kitchen, are a multi-purpose programming space for residence hall students.
