Renaissance Hall

Renaissance Hall

The 82,000 square foot, LEED® Silver certified dormitory consists of two three-story, brick-and-glass structure, housing 338 students with 144 double rooms with bathrooms,12 four bedroom suites (private rooms) 2 rooms share a bathroom, and 2 RA apartments. The award-winning Renaissance Hall was recognized with three separate honors, including the 2012 Merit Award from the Associated Builders and Contractors of the Carolinas, the Residential Green Building Award from the U.S. Green Building Council, and one of only two annual Star Awards from the Construction Project Network of North Carolina. All three awards recognize FSU's commitment to sustainability and an integrated project team approach in designing and constructing new facilities.

One of the key energy efficiency innovations is FSU's first geothermal heating, HVAC system.  All the space heating, cooling and domestic hot water needs for the residence hall rely on a network of underground piping that is often referred to as a "geothermal loop." 

Renaissance Hall has an enhanced envelope, high-performance glazing on windows, reflective roof and high-efficiency mechanical, lighting, electrical and plumbing fixtures to reduce energy use and enhance building performance. It has a large fitness room and an equally large media room where residents can compete with each other on a large computer screen. There are both wired and wireless internet accesses throughout the building.
