Arkansas Tech University
BASWELL RESIDENCE HALL
Multi-Use Residence Hall
The project consists of a new five-story residence hall on the Arkansas Tech University campus. The housing component consist of 232 beds with shared recreational and study spaces. The new facility is set up with two double occupancy dormitory rooms sharing a common bathroom. Baswell is a modern alternative to residential suites.
The university wanted one project to accommodate several objectives. The first and primary objective was to substantially increase availability of on campus student housing and to energize the south end of campus. The sports component’s primary goal was to modernize the stadium’s support facilities and satisfy spectator needs by including new stadium restrooms, concessions and ticketing facilities. The university needed to transform the existing exposed steel stadium into a campus asset and bring facilities up to a level of competition with conference peers. The mixed-use addition elevated both the stadium and collegiate events on field and in the adjacent Memorial Plaza project. Embracing both the individual and the collective student body, Baswell energizes the campus experience for students and visitors alike.
