The University of Tampa’s newest residence hall, Howard and Patricia Jenkins Hall, was designed to promote student community and interaction. Designed and built by Beck, the 11-story residence hall houses 528 undergraduate students. A typical suite has four single bedrooms, a large common living room and two full bathrooms. Two, two-story lofts, accessed from the 10th floor, offer townhouse-like living and outstanding views, for groups of eight students each. All rooms are cable and network ready. There are multiple large living areas with floor to ceiling glass, common kitchen areas as well as a laundry room. In addition to residential suites, the top floor contains two large community multi-purpose rooms, specifically for organizational and group activities. Offering views of Tampa Bay, the rooms have flexible floor plans. With green features such as a rooftop solar array and daylight optimized living spaces, the project achieved LEED Gold certification.
