NJIT Warren Street Village
This six-building, three-acre complex, known as the Warren Street Village, includes a six-story Honors College dormitory building with administration space, computer labs, lounge areas, fitness center, and restaurants in the lower two floors, plus four stories of student housing (450 beds). Across from the Honors College are five three-story Greek houses that provide the college’s first on-campus Greek dormitories. Each Greek duplex unit is 15,000 SF (30 beds per house). Housing approximately 600 students, the Warren Street Village increases the New Jersey Institute of Technology‘s (NJIT) on-campus student residences by 35% to 2,200 beds. The interior courtyard between the Honors and Greek buildings provides an exterior gathering space and park area that enhances the campus environment that NJIT began creating down the street at the Campus Center several years prior. The structure is a panelized load-bearing structural stud system. Panels were fabricated in a shop off site and erected in place with precast plank floors. The exterior panels are load-bearing as well, and incorporate a brick facade with punched windows as part of the system. Opened in 1885 as the Newark Technical School, NJIT has grown and expanded over the past 130 years to include seven colleges that cover fields ranging from computing sciences to engineering and architecture and design.
