The first phase of construction for the new residence hall will consist of two 5-story dormitory towers, a partial basement, and a 2-story connector pavilion. A future second phase may be planned that would call for the construction of a third dormitory tower with connector pavilion.
Provisions have been made in the design of the south tower to accommodate a future connector pavilion that may ultimately lead to a third dormitory tower.
The design contained within this proposal provides 422 beds for the students at JMU, with the North residence tower containing 211 beds and the South residence tower providing 209 beds. In addition, each of the dorm towers contains a live-in staff apartment, which brings the total number of beds for the Phase III Residence Hall to 422.
The total planned area for the Phase III Residence Hall is 131,788 gross square feet. The North residence tower is 59,941 gross square feet in size. The South residence tower is planned to be 62,585 gross square feet. The two-story connector pavilion contains 9,262 gross square feet.
