Rochester Institute of Technology Global Village Community

Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) retained Architectural Resources Cambridge to create a community on campus for the promotion and support of global learning initiatives. Global Village has become a state-of-the art residential community and commercial complex creating an on-campus oasis for recreation, dining, shopping, and living. It provides students with a global living and learning experience through the use of student services, academic resources, and amenities that enhance their learning during their time at RIT.

Global Village’s 414-bed student residences feel more like more like a hotel with d̩ecor reminiscent of regions from around the world and provide upper-class students with a state-of-the-art global living experience. Other unique aspects of the complex include heated outdoor seating, a beach volleyball court, water feature, outdoor fire pit and ice-skating rink and a performance area with a stage. The Global Village courtyard also includes 28,000 square feet of heated pavement to increase usability in winter. In addition to new dining options, the complex features a hair salon, post office, wellness center, art gallery, and a sports outfitter.

The project is LEED Gold certified with construction being completed in 2010.
