The first phase of a five year plan, completed in 2018, included construction of two residence halls on the northeast corner of campus near the current University Center housing. Madonna’s capacity for residential students has been increased from 300 to 450. The new residence halls provide the latest in student-housing amenities, enhancing students’ campus living and learning experience. The buildings were designed from the ground up to attract students by creating a unique living situation that is not common among traditional higher education offerings.
Designed with freshman and sophomore students in mind, the first building provides 98 total beds in a mix of private and semi-private rooms. The three-story residence hall features two sections on either side of a common student lounge and dining area on each floor. The fully-furnished bedrooms include private closets and desks for each student. The residents on each floor share private bathrooms, common laundry space, and common lounge space that includes a full kitchen and seating area.
