We are currently designing two new residential colleges for Princeton University. Each college will serve 500 students. The 485,000-square-foot project represents a major expansion of the campus and a first step in the university’s next 30-year campus plan.
The colleges maximize connections: to campus, to an intact woodland, to athletics and recreation, and among students, in carefully calibrated ways so that community coheres around the many spheres of undergraduate life. The new colleges will include eating, sleeping, study, cultural, and social spaces to enrich the daily lives of undergraduates during their four years on campus.
One of the goals of the design is to create places that undergraduate students identify as their home on campus within a welcoming and inclusive university community. Of critical significance has been our and Princeton’s focus on the student experience, and collective will to provide rich and varied access to a common college experience.
Expected completion date – 2022
