Stony Brook, N.Y. — When complete, this new construction will bring the campus housing inventory to 10,300 beds, the largest in the SUNY system.
Stony Brook, N.Y. — Stony Brook University has broken ground on phase I of a new 759-room student housing facility and 60,000-square-foot dining center that will be complete in fall 2016. The new development will offer additional residential options for upperclassman and bring the total on-campus housing inventory to more than 10,300 beds, which will make Stony Brook University’s housing program the largest in the State University of New York (SUNY) system. Construction on phase II will begin in December this year. KSQ is the architect and the contractor is Aurora.
The new facility on John S. Toll Drive, will feature two buildings. Phase I will consist of a 303-bed residence hall and phase II with 456 beds, will be adjacent to the first. The units, comprised predominantly of suites with four single bedrooms, will each have a living room and two bathrooms. The facilities will be air conditioned, with individual thermostatic controls, and will offer high-speed wired and wireless internet access and a range of other amenities.
The dining portion of the project will replace nearly all food service venues currently located in the Stony Brook Union, allowing for the conversion of the union to a dedicated student services center. The range of new dining options that will be offered include multiple dine-in and take-out choices, seating for more than 800 students, and gathering places with wireless internet access.
