The newest dormitory structure at the UNR campus is the Living Learning Community Building. The five story, $3.5 million project for 320 students encourages student participation in “floor communities.” It is one of the few such facilities in the US, and it combines both classrooms and faculty offices in the same building. Students are assigned to the same floor based on core classes they have in common, and faculty offices relevant to this core classes are in close proximity. Because of these innovations, students are able to study and interact more effectively than the typical dorm room, which can be isolating. The building is LEED certified for long term energy savings.
