Two new, interconnected residence halls on Tuck Mall will provide housing for 162 students in a combination of singles and two-room doubles. A glass connector facing southwest will serve as primary social space for students living in the halls. The ground and first floors will offer large spaces for parties and gatherings for use by students in the Butterfield, Russell Sage and Gold Coast residence halls. The Tuck Mall residence halls, in addition to sweeping views, will offer kitchens and lounges on each floor. The exterior design of the buildings fits with the existing architecture of Tuck Mall, while the modern atrium adds a contemporary touch.

The Tuck Mall residence halls are designed by the architectural firm of Atkin, Olshin, Lawson-Bell. Construction of the buildings is under the supervision of North Branch Construction, Inc. The residence halls are expected to be open in the fall of 2006.
