PROJECT DETAILS

A Gem of Student Housing

Jewell Hall is the first of four new residence halls on the north side of campus. The 7 story building features 2 bedroom suites, residence kitchens, and shared high tech laundry facilities. The residence hall accommodates 740 students with amenities such as wireless Internet, satellite televisions, and several academic living/learning communities providing social and academic interaction between students of the same majors.

Jewell Hall features two unique spaces. The first, a 4,000 SF seventh floor roof top terrace provides a unique outdoor gathering space with tables and chairs that is highlighted by dramatic panoramic views of the University campus and downtown Lexington. The second, located on the ground floor, Champion Court features a campus coffee shop and an academic tutoring center, The Study.

The Study is an 8,400 SF central student tutoring and collaboration facility to serve the north side of the campus. The Study’s is a flexible and collaborative highly technologically advanced space, where groups of students or individual students can work on projects, study or receive individual or group tutoring. The facility is clad from floor to ceiling with a high tech, modular DIRTT Wall system that makes every wall a writing surface. The system is highly customized and electronically integrated with video monitors that allow student to plug directly into to use when developing presentations. Part of The Study is on a raised DIRTT Floor system which also allows for flexibility with power and data connections for smart furniture.

The Study also accommodates a third party coffee shop, which boasts three 18’ foot wide operable storefronts that can be opened during pleasant weather to take advantage of the expansive arcade and plaza in front of The Study. The coffee shop also has a small fold down stage for patrons to use for small performances and exhibits.

Jewell Hall is LEED Silver Certified. Bike racks are scattered throughout the site to encourage sustainability.

They Aren't "Dorms" Anymore
Today’s college students embrace housing facilities that are lively, engaging, state-of-the-art, and sustainable.

Sherman Carter Barnhart's design solutions evaluate the entire campus and campus fabric to engage the residence hall with the university campus as a whole. Residence halls are not isolated but instead a key component to the campus. Residence halls are walkable, amenity-filled communities that more closely resemble a mixed-use apartment complex than what we once called a dormitory.

When I describe what it was like living in Haggin Hall (the old one) in '78 .... Oliver (son who lived in Lewis Hall as a freshman and still as a sophomore) just looks at me weird .... he just can't imagine .... nice work SCB !

Fostering Privacy & Community
It's a balancing act. On one side the majority of freshmen coming to campus have never shared a bedroom. They want to choose how and when they socialize. On the other side, university and college officials know a sense of community must exist for students to succeed.

Our design solutions provide a balance. Student rooms feature private sleeping and study areas coupled with community eating and socializing spaces. To continue to foster a sense of community, each residence hall features kitchens, lounges and study spaces.
