The 100,322-square-foot building offers communal spaces for informal connections and uses circulation space as a social connector for impromptu meetings. The more open floor plan provides visual connections between spaces and emphasizes the inclusive and open nature of residence life. Hudson Hall residents may choose from 18, six-bed suites or 57, four-bed suites, and enjoy access to building amenities such as a student commons with Starbucks Café and convenience store, a 5,000-square-foot fitness center, large community and lounge spaces, and study gathering and study areas.
The building also features sustainable design elements that qualify for New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) financial incentives, including fixtures that promote water efficiency; recyclable, regionally produced building materials; and modern lighting fixtures such as occupancy sensors.
