Robinson Hall Dormitory
Irwin & Leighton was proud to be selected as the Design Builder for Penn State’s new North Halls Dormitory. Together with /EYP Architects the team designed the new dormitory to Penn State’s standards and budget. The team broke ground on March 7, 2016 with the demolition of a large surface parking area that sits between Stuckeman, Holmes and Runkle Halls. This new five-story, +/-90,000 square feet, 300-bed residence hall is now home to first year students at Penn State’s Main campus. Common spaces include floor lounges and study nooks, laundry rooms, a communal kitchen, community and study rooms and a Resident Life Staff apartment on the ground floor. This project took into special consideration its environmental footprint and seeks to achieve a minimum of a LEED Silver Certification. The building was constructed in an “L” shape allowing for extra space outside for students to enjoy.
