Saint Louis University

Grand Residence and Dining Hall

As part of a multi-phase housing plan, Hastings+Chivetta has designed a seven-story, 237,000SF residence hall and dining facility for Saint Louis University.

The facility will include 528 beds in single and double suite-style rooms. In addition to student housing, the building also will include a 740-seat campus dining hall, classrooms, study lounges and an outdoor plaza.

Located in the heart of campus, the building is designed for first- and second-year students. It will be connected to the largest residential facility on campus and adjacent to the recreation center. It will replace a surface parking lot.

The new residence hall is the second of two projects on campus — both designed by Hastings+Chivetta — that will add housing for nearly 1,000 students.

The University plans to finance construction of both residence halls through a bond issue that will be repaid over a period of years – in part through additional housing revenues the projects are expected to generate.

Students, faculty and other stakeholders have been involved in every step of the planning and design process.
