The accolades just keep on coming for the High Street Residence Hall, which was recently honored for its design by the Society of American Registered Architects (SARA). Completed in 2018, Dickinson's newest residential space covers 40,500 square feet and is home to approximately 130 upper-level students. Since its completion, it has also been lauded by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) for its sustainable design, becoming the first LEED Platinum-certified building associated with an institution of higher education in the state.
Leading the project was Deborah Berke Partners, an architectural design company out of New York whose designs have graced campuses such as Yale University, Harvard Law School and Princeton University.
In addition to pleasing the eye, the building's design supports many sustainable features, including energy-efficient exterior walls and roof, four rain gardens and bike storage for students.
