Florida A&M University Residence Hall
As the first new residence hall in more than 17 years, the FAMU Village dormitory is part of the University’s long-term plan to transform and elevate services for students, creating a sense of community. The new dormitory establishes a new campus gateway, allowing for future campus development. The design includes 800 beds on six floors, community rooms, study spaces and computer labs. The ground floor provides for university spaces to better serve the students. This development defines the western edge of the campus and upholds and expands upon the architectural traditions of the campus while having its own distinguishable character. The relationship of the dorm to the stadium is reinforced by a special “Game Day Lounge” on the fourth floor that overlooks the central plaza toward the football stadium and provides space for student gatherings.
