The second of two new residence halls on Belknap Campus will open its doors to first-year students in Fall 2022. Directly opposite New Residence Hall 2021, NRH2022 will mirror the first new hall in structure and design. Check out a livestream to keep up with the progress, and check out our monthly construction updates.

Located in the Heart of Campus

As visitors enter campus from University Boulevard near the Ralph Wright Natatorium and proceed past the Houchen's Building, they will approach NRH2022. Prospective students and their families will be able to view the new facility as they arrive on campus for tours with the Office of Admissions. As with residents of NRH2021, those who choose to stay in NRH2022 will find themselves immersed in the heart of campus. Located directly adjacent to the Student Activities Center (SAC) and just a minute's walk from  the Red Barn, NRH2022 will place first-year students in proximity to restaurants, cafes such as Starbucksa campus movie theater, the university bookstore, and several classes as well as offices.
