A new residence hall for sophomores, juniors, and seniors opens this fall. O’Brien Hall, named for President Emeritus Dennis O’Brien, completes a four-building residential area, Jackson Court, named for President Emeritus Thomas Jackson. The hall is distinctive for its number of study rooms and lounges on upper floors and flexible common areas for meetings, event planning, and music and dance recitals. O’Brien Hall is targeted to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold certification standards—a first for the River Campus.
