High Street Residence Hall

Benchmark worked with Dickinson College and Deborah Berke Partners on the construction of the new High Street Residence Hall. The four-story, 40,475 SF building houses 129 students in both single- and double-occupancy rooms and is the newest addition to Dickinson College’s on-campus housing. In accordance with the College’s strong culture of sustainability, the new High Street Residence Hall has attained the designation of LEED Platinum for Homes. The exterior façade of the building is a combination of zinc panels and locally quarried limestone which blends the new modern residence hall into the rich architecture of the campus which dates to 1783. The interior of the building provides suite living accommodations and study spaces that encourage an organic collaborative learning environment.
