Loyola University Chicago | San Francisco Hall
This freshman/sophomore residence hall is programmed to accommodate these distinct communities. The freshmen floors provide traditional double rooms of 60 students per floor, arranged as two neighborhoods of 30 students. Each neighborhood shares bathroom facilities of compartmentalized toilet and shower rooms. A separate wing of the building features eight sophomore semi-suite units. The residence is physically and programmatically linked to the Wright Hall Academic Building and the Institute for Urban Environmental Sustainability (IUES).
The Institute for Urban Environmental Sustainability (IUES) at Loyola University Chicago is the next step in the evolution of student housing, with academic integration and aggressive sustainable goals set in an urban environment. IUES builds on the research and core elements of The 21st Century Project to move the dialogue on student housing forward, and provide the variety of unit types and amenities to reinforce development for students. The inclusive programming and planning approach fosters interdisciplinary interactions between academics, student social groups, and the local community
