About the building:
Gladding Residence Center offers both traditional double bedrooms and four-person semi-suites. The building is subdivided into six neighborhoods of approximately 125-200 students. These neighborhoods provide an intimate community with their own shared kitchens, laundry facilities, study areas and lounges that promote student interaction and community development.

Gladding Residence Center offers several unique amenities. All rooms come with a microfridge, a combination of microwave and mini-fridge, and built-in USB charging ports. Semi-suites in Gladding Residence Center allow four students to share a bathroom while providing each resident with their own sink. Traditional rooms are shared between two students and have two community-style bathrooms per floor. These floors are co-ed with community-style bathrooms that are shared by all genders. These bathrooms have a shared public vanity area and private individual toilet and shower stalls with floor to ceiling dividers that give the occupant complete privacy.
