The residence houses at Hendrix epitomize a new philosophy in student housing. Instead of a traditional hall, 16-18 residents live in conditions that are more like home with suites and common lounge areas. Combined, the six homes provide 32,340 square feet of living space, 88 phone lines, 112 computer lines, 20 baths, eight showers, 56 lavatories and 32 toilets.
The new residences have two different floor plans. The "A" units house 18 students and the "B" units are home to 16 students. All "A" units have 5,310 total square feet, five and one-half baths, a full kitchen, a washer and dryer, a common area with a 25-foot ceiling, ten single bedrooms and four double bedrooms.
