Framingham State University will open a spectacular new 410-bed Residence Hall in Fall 2011. The new building, which is currently entering a final phase of its construction, will feature four-person suites and conjoined double and single rooms with semi-private baths, as well as numerous study and recreational spaces inside and outside of the facility. Glenn Cochran, Associate Dean of Students and Director of Residence Life looks forward to opening what is sure to be a premier living and learning space for FSU students. “The design team incorporated student input about what they want in a residence hall experience from the start,” Cochran said. “This influenced everything from some of the environmentally-friendly elements of the design, to the furniture selections, to the basketball half-court out back.” Other amenities include floor lounges equipped with kitchen space, a ground-floor “grab-and-go” store, and a fair-weather outdoor patio.
