Greiner Residence Hall


The $57 million, 198,000-square-foot building blends residential, academic and recreational spaces in a "learning landscape." Its architecture follows the principles of universal design, meaning the building and its amenities are designed to be accessible to people with diverse abilities. The building is the first in Western New York designed to meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold standard. This residence hall is intended for sophomore students. It is a six-story structure located on the North Campus, adjacent to the Fargo building of the Ellicott Complex. Greiner Hall consists mainly of living suites, and also contains a café, classrooms and offices on the ground floor.
