NDSU Catherine Cater Residence Life Hall

As an answer to North Dakota State University’s shortage of on-campus housing, Catherine Cater Hall was designed to provide a modern, state-of-the-art living environment for sophomore students. The project also complimented NDSU’s goal of raising student enrollment.

The residence hall has eight community lounges, ten conversation nooks, ten study spaces with floor to ceiling windows and ten huddle rooms. These spaces feature amenities including a multi-screen game room, theater screen, community kitchen, laundry and a fully equipped rec room. The hall has 455 beds and gives students the ability to choose between one and two bedroom suite options. The six-story residence hall connects to the existing tunnel system on campus that links to the dining services center, allowing students to stay inside during harsh weather and cold winters.
