Northeast Community College faced a significant housing shortage in recent years. They found many Northeast student prospects were going elsewhere largely because of the lack of available housing. The College had a vision to attract future prospects with a new residence hall and cafeteria/student life center.
The new 63,000 square foot Path Hall residence hall accommodates 191 students in state-of-the-art single and double bedroom suites, with four residents living in each suite. Study lounges are situated on each of the three floors, with a common use kitchen and laundry facilities on first floor.
The 30,000 square foot Hawks Point dining facility and student life center provides dining for approximately 450 students. In addition to student and private dining areas the student life center includes meeting rooms, a student lounge, exercise space and a computer lab. A convenience store is located in the building and offers students access to late night coffee, snacks and other personal needs.
Mechanical and electrical systems are in place to support an additional residence hall of the same size as enrollment at the college continues to grow. Together these facilities combine to meet the needs of both the college and the community while making a place the students can call home. The accommodations provided will be excellent ways to attract potential students and be used to further the college experience. The added benefits of student engagement will contribute to establishing lifetime friendships and help turn their dreams into realities.
