Keene State College

Pondside III Residence Hall

One of two distinct new student housing facilities within the existing campus limits, this award-winning, suite-style residence hall sets a new standard for residential life at Keene State College. The 54,000 square foot building includes a variety of living arrangements—from five-person flats to 12-person duplexes. Common areas are carefully crafted to maximize social engagement, and include large and small commons rooms, study rooms, game rooms, and a shared kitchen/cafe. The Pondside III Residence Hall is the College’s most sustainable building with a LEED® Silver rating.
