The Northeast Triangle Residence Hall Will Add New Student Space
A New Opportunity to Transform the Heart of the Campus
Construction on a new residence hall on the Northeast Triangle across from the Reiss Science Building is expected to begin in 2014. This residence hall will include not only new housing, but also flexible spaces to support innovative student collaborations and enrichment through studying and contemplation.
Data collected through the university’s collaborative master planning process showed heavy pedestrian traffic in the area and a need for both social spaces and a larger and more dynamic residential community. The Northeast Triangle is the first of these residential projects and represents an effort to integrate the north part of campus into a more comprehensive housing strategy.
Georgetown’s planning team is committed to engaging a wide range of stakeholders in developing these residence halls as part of its commitment to its internal stakeholders and the surrounding community. Its goal is to ensure that the facilities serve the university’s students and the campus community well into the future.
Designs for the Northeast Triangle residence hall were originally presented to the Georgetown community this past July, after which Georgetown’s planning team heard from many university community members who asked for a reconsideration of the designs. In response, the university is reaching out to students and alumni to solicit opinions on several new design choices.
