Seton Hall University Graduate Dormitories

Program

A demographic study performed by a prestigious University indicated the need for an on-campus dormitory to accommodate graduate student enrollment.

In response, RSA and our Associate Architect, Ennead, designed a state-of-the-art, 14-story, 250-room residence hall in an urban downtown area.

Challenges

Delivering a design that pays homage to existing neighborhood landmarks, tourist areas and commercial businesses

Integrate a retail component on the first floor

Select materials to match style and scale with neighborhood buildings
