Skyline, Brandeis' newest residence hall, features sweeping views of downtown Boston and prioritizes energy efficiency and sustainability. It opened to some early arriving students Aug. 14 and 15 and will open to all residents Aug. 28.

Designed by renowned Boston architects William Rawn Associates, Skyline’s array of power sources prioritizes energy efficiency and sustainability. The building’s heating and cooling run on a system of 40 geothermal wells. Brandeis also installed solar panels on Skyline’s roof, which will account for a portion of the building’s power and help with peak campus electricity demand management. The new residence hall sits on land formerly part of Usen Castle. Part of the Skyline construction project also included a full renovation of Cholmondeley’s (Chum’s) Coffee House, which remains at the base of Usen Castle’s A and B towers, in summer 2017.

It will house 164 students. The first of those students, Sagie Tvizer '19 moved in on Aug. 14.
