The construction of the third Residential College on the Zimple Quad will begin in January 2013. The structure will consist of 4 story and 6-story sections connected by a courtyard and bridges at the upper stories. Room arrangements consist of single and double occupancy rooms with a capacity of housing 256 students.
Unique features of this dormitory include a demonstration kitchen, a 35-seat classroom, a living room as well as study and social lounges at the upper levels. As with the other Residential Colleges, RC-III will have a Faculty-In-Residence (F.I.R.) and a Community Director (CD). A state of the art building automation system will ensure comfort in all seasons for students and Faculty while maintaining energy conservation at all levels.
RC-III is tracking a LEED-Silver rating upon completion, expected in time for the fall, 2014 semester.
