William Paterson University Opens Newly-Constructed, Eco-Friendly Residence Hall, Skyline Hall

William Paterson University has opened the doors to its brand new eco-friendly, 285-bed suite-style residence hall. Designated for sophomore, juniors, and seniors, the five-floor, 90,000-square-foot Skyline Hall boasts the latest in environmentally friendly and high-efficiency equipment, as part of the university’s longstanding commitment to being a sustainable, “green” campus.

All paint in the building is low- or zero VOC (volatile organic compound), as are adhesives for carpeting. Hard-surface floors are made of materials that require no waxing or stripping – eliminating a need for harsh chemicals. Energy-efficient windows and LED lighting are installed throughout, and each floor has its own recycling-sorting chutes to keep recyclable items appropriately separated as they travel to compactors down below.

On the technology side, laundry facilities are synced to a mobile app that alert students when their clothes are clean and dry. 

Residents of Skyline Hall will live in semi-suites – two bedrooms with a shared bath – arranged in “clusters” on each floor. The facility provides open spaces with natural light, as well as community areas that include a kitchen, social lounges with televisions and gaming areas, study lounges, a meeting room, and a classroom.
