University Hall

Corner of Rennell and University Ave, Bridgeport, CT 06604
Check out our newest residence hall! Designed to embrace the context of the local architecture, stylized by the many private homes on campus, which were part of a beautiful seaside community built during the industrial era of late 19th and early 20th centuries, the new residence hall is suggestive of a resort hotel, similar to those of Bar Harbor Maine. The façade is punctuated by a curved bay window with a front porch that welcomes students home to an entrance lobby decorated in a theme that extends Victorian flair of the exterior design. This modern, sustainably designed, 60,000 sq. ft. four story facility will house 220 students, with 60+ credits, in a variety of residence configurations including suites and traditional bedrooms along with many social amenity rooms and support services.
