Student Residence Halls just aren’t what they used to be. No longer satisfied with the traditional style dormitory, students are demanding bigger and better rooms, private bathrooms, kitchens and more. Dominican Hall at Caldwell College in Caldwell, NJ was designed to meet the needs of today’s student. The 57,000 square foot dorm was recently named a Dorm of Distinction by University Business magazine, and here’s why:
Students have the choice of single or joint rooms that also offer kitchen and living areas. The residence hall is also equipped with handicap accessible units and has laundry facilities on each floor as well as lounge areas. Caldwell’s students were involved in the design process; choosing furniture styles, as well as paint and carpeting. Dominican Hall met the school’s demands of increased resident student enrollment and also allowed them to meet the New Jersey state objective to increase capacity for students.
DeLuxe’s modular construction method enabled the college to house new students for the fall 2007 semester, ultimately generating income for the school much sooner than conventional construction would have.
