Rauenhorst Hall

St. Catherine University recognizes that the quality and variety of on-campus housing is now a competitive issue for prospective students. Responding to this need, this new residence hall includes amenities that attract incoming and returning students. The design includes both suite-style units and apartment-style units with private bathrooms and kitchens. Computer labs/study rooms and full kitchens can be found on each floor. A dramatic two-story lobby/study area, fireplace, and lecture hall are also part of the shared spaces within the building.

In collaboration with Opus Architects and Engineers, Collaborative Design Group, completed the construction documents for this project (Opus provided schematic design through design development). The 92,000 sf, four-story building adds 224 beds to the campus.
