Leggatt Hall, with 338 single rooms varies from three storeys to five storeys and is located on Stuart Street. The 114,000-square-foot building includes two courtyards and a pavilion at its entrance.
The building is clad in natural limestone keeping with the overall aesthetic of the existing buildings on campus while the design’s use of multiple planes creates a unique sense of depth, solidity and architectural character.
The residence is divided up into “houses” with roughly 35 people per house, as well as a lounge, kitchen and study area. There are three houses per floor in Leggatt Hall. Much of the focus within the residences is on the creation of social areas, places in which students can meet, lounge and study with other students thereby enhancing the sense of community on campus. The residence design makes use of the multiple common areas both within and beyond the houses, including the exterior landscaped courtyards which provide low-wall concrete seating areas surrounding large lawns.
