Delta State University Men's Residence

Cleveland, MS

Project: Menís Dormitory
Owner: Delta State University
Location : Cleveland, Mississippi
Contractor: Roy Collins Construction Company
Completion Date: 2001
Area: 45,000 sq ft on three floors

Residential dormitories at universities offer a unique challenge to designers and student housing departments - to build facilities that are both comfortable and maintainable and to do this within ever present budget restraints. This 200 bed dormitory does all three. It uses concrete masonry interior walls on a cast-in-place concrete structure with brick and precast stone on the exterior. With a layout where two typical double-bed rooms share a bath, the facility has a laundry and/or lounge on each of the three floors and study rooms on the second and third floors as well. The three story lounge/lobby make the building very inviting to students and visitors alike.
