Two new Residential Colleges at Princeton University, each serving 510 students, offer rich and varied access to a communal college experience. The colleges maximize connections: to campus, to an intact woodland, to athletics, to recreation, and most importantly, among students. With gestures both subtle and overt, the colleges are designed for a cohesive community organized around the many spheres of undergraduate life. The new buildings include dining, sleeping, studying, cultural, and social spaces to enrich the daily lives of undergraduates during their four years on campus. The student experience has been a point of critical focus for Princeton and our design team. Our design aims to create places where the students can feel at home on campus.
