Ten-story Summit Hall opened this fall, the tallest building on campus by four feet. Located next to Plemmons Student Union, Summit Hall is expected to achieve LEED® Gold designation because of its sustainable construction. It houses about 330 Honors College upperclassmen, international students, Diversity Scholars, Plemmons Fellows, and upperclass students in other leadership and engagement programs.
Among its LEED® features are water fountains designed for refilling personal water bottles, cutting down on the use of one-time-use plastic bottles. A digital display indicates how many plastic bottles have been saved.
Summit features a common area on each floor, pictured. The building is co-ed, with suite-style rooms that feature two bedrooms and a shared bathroom.
