O’Brien Residence Hall

O’Brien Hall is located on the University’s River Campus overlooking the Genesee River. It is designed to complement adjacent residential and academic buildings and establishes a new outdoor commons to support student interaction and planned activities.

A portion of the ground floor contains administrative spaces and rooms for campus-wide use, including conferencing, performing arts, and music rehearsal facilities. Upper floors accommodate student living through a collection of singles, doubles, and suites with a central lounge and study room on each floor.

The building attained LEED® Gold certification established by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), with sustainable features that include maximization of natural daylight, vegetative roofing, low-emitting finishes, and individual controllability of lighting, heating, and cooling.
