Following a collaboration on the Campus Master Plan and a first-year housing study, Quinnipiac University engaged Ayers Saint Gross to design the first-year residence hall implementation: The Grove. Designed to help first-year students have an impactful experience, the residence hall includes ample outside-the-unit and amenity spaces for study, collaboration, and socialization.

The Grove features 415 beds of traditional housing as a mix of single and double units, as well as an apartment for live-in faculty and one for residential staff on the ground floor. Bathrooms are configured as private communal, which provides necessary privacy while gaining from shared fixtures. The program mix encourages interactions for first-year students, with a building lounge, kitchen, and laundry room featured on each floor, as well as flexible space for residential programing.

Sited adjacent to the existing student union and first-year housing commons, the design enhances connections to the rest of the campus. The building form creates a central green space, while glazing provides visibility and views to the natural environment.

This project is designed in association with Amenta Emma.
