Washburn University - Lincoln Residence Hall & Dining Center
Washburn’s new 339-bed residence hall is a four-story masonry building with suite style units and a 305-seat dining center offering all-you-care-to-eat style service. The new residence life complex serves as the end piece for the new campus quad.
At the center of each community there is a cluster of study room, lounge, student kitchen and laundry room integrated in a two story space. This unique approach promotes community between the residents of two floors on each wing. Dubbed the "Laundryrama,” the concept increases opportunities for building community, not only between RA communities on each floor, but also between two floors. The laundry room is visually connected to the floor lounge. This lounge also houses an open student kitchen. The two-story space includes a mezzanine that connects the second floor, providing barrier-free access to this space and can be used as open study room.
