In the Fall of 2013, the first group of residents moved into the Green Prairie Community. The contemporary residence hall is the first to be built on campus since 1971, and was designed to meet Minnesota B3 sustainability guidelines. Able to house 72 students, the two-story hall offers suite-style housing, with four-person suites (with single and double occupancy rooms), four floor lounges and kitchenettes, a central lounge, patio, and study space.
