Madison Square

Student Living with a Townhouse Twist

To expand their student housing capacity, the University of Scranton chose the BDA team to create Madison Square residence hall. The three-story residence hall houses 114 students in a variety of three-, four- and five-bedroom apartments. To achieve an upscale townhouse feeling, the number of apartments were limited to three per floor and grouped into three distinct buildings around a central courtyard. This grouping not only provided a more upscale feel but helped to maintain a quieter academic environment with reduced door-to-door interaction. Most bedrooms are single occupancy, and each apartment has two bathrooms, a kitchen/dining area and a living room. The buildings of the hall were constructed with masonry bearing walls wrapped with a brick veneer, and the pitched roof was framed with wood trusses and finished with shingles to blend with the adjacent residential neighborhood
