Project Description

Dauphin Hall represents the latest student housing on the Pennsylvania College of Technology Campus. This new structure completes the Rose Street Quad, which houses approximately 1200 students within six buildings.

This facility provides exceptional private living, learning and social environments. 268 students live in suite configurations comprised of primarily single rooms, housing eight to twelve students, bathroom facilities and storage pantry. A centralized Resident Assistant provides oversight for two to three suites which creates a small community. A large, glass-enclosed leisure commons with a kitchenette, is capable of seating 40- 50 students, provides a central gathering space for social activities and collaborative in-residence learning that enhances their classroom education.

A spacious 460 seat dining room provides typical daily meals, catered faire and special events throughout the academic year. Two private dining rooms are available for faculty and small group usage. The Servery, with its eight point server and grab ‘n go offerings is supported by a complete fullservice kitchen. It can be secured for after hour usage such as lectures, club meetings or other social events. The food service equipment includes: a dish washing conveyor, multiple prep and cooling stations, walk-in coolers and freezer, staff office and a secure loading dock.

Located within the public space on the first floor, other student amenities include: a new 40 station satellite fitness center: two large leisure commons; a student grocery store; laundry facilities; student mail boxes; Resident Life Offices; Campus Police; and Hall Coordinator’s apartment.

All vertical circulation points are enclosed in glass and provide clear, visual contact for campus police and student. The ground floor is open to the public and Resident ID’s are required to access the upper levels.
