Apartment-style living is provided to 236 students at Stone Ridge Commons, The Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania Foundation’s newest off-campus student-housing unit.

This residence hall features two- and four-person suites, each with kitchens, full bathrooms, a common living area and direct access to the university’s mainframe and the Internet.

Stone Ridge Commons also offers a fitness center, laundry facilities, lounges, vending areas and group-study rooms. Constructed of masonry and concrete plank, the facility met the owner’s budgetary and schedule needs without compromising integrity.

The split-face block exterior is durable, attractive and provides subtle detail to the already articulated facade. The foundation’s concern for safety prompted a fully sprinklered facility, a card-access security system at all doors and an office at the entry staffed during the day.
