University Hall was designed by Antinozzi Associates of Bridgeport to embraces the context of the local architecture. This design allows it to blend seamlessly with the many private homes on campus that were built during the industrial era of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Suggestive of a resort hotel similar to those of Bar Harbor, Maine, the residence hall features steeply-pitched hip roofs with wide overhangs shelter a facade comprised of forest green board, batten siding, and wood shakes above a terracotta masonry base. 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 to the exterior design. Construction by KBE Construction Company of New Britain, Connecticut began in May of 2015 and was completed for the Fall 2016 semester.
