Watching the Campus Grow
Trinity Hall, the new 220-bed, 80,000-square-foot residence hall located on the west side of the south campus, is slated for completion for the start of the fall semester. Following a key strategy for low-impact, sustainable development at CLU, this project represents the first significant application of permeable paving on the campus. The new parking stall areas, constructed to the west of the building, feature Drivable Grass® Paving Systems. This paving allows stormwater runoff to infiltrate into the subsurface, instead of running off into the storm drain system, minimizing the impact of the development on the regional watershed and improving overall stormwater runoff quality. Trinity Hall parking areas will utilize sand fill instead of grass since the parking lots are expected to be fully utilized most of the year.

The Facilities Department is relocating this month to its newly completed facility on Campus Drive north of Olsen Road.
