The University of South Florida St. Petersburg’s newest 125,000 SF student housing and dining facility will house 375-beds and the university’s first full-service dining facility with seating for 400. The facility is scheduled to open in July 2020.
Designed and built by The Beck Group with MBE partner, Envision, the first floor features the dining hall with a spacious communal kitchen and a large lounge with multiple seating areas.
The rooms in the residence hall are suite-style, with the majority being four-bed, two-bath double-occupancy units. The remainder of the rooms are two-bed, one-bath single-occupancy units, with about half designated as “flex” units capable of converting to double occupancy. Each floor in the facility includes a student lounge and study room, and a community laundry space.
The Beck Group and Envision are seeking LEED certification for the facility to align with USF St. Petersburg’s emphasis on sustainability.
