One wall outlet for voice and data will be provided per resident, and each room will have one video outlet. The wings are linked to a pavilion that provides controlled access, as well as specialized computer output labs and meeting rooms. Lounges with kitchenettes and group studies on each floor provide opportunities for socialization and project work.

Each hall is provided with two classroom spaces, seating up to 120 students.
