Lyden HouseYoungstown, Ohio

Project Description

Lyden House is a 72,000 SF, five story collegiate gothic style residence hall for 300 students. It was the first new residence hall to be built at Youngstown State since the early 1960s. Facilities include traditional double student rooms, handicapped rooms, and six resident advisor rooms, all with common bath areas. There is also a resident manager’s apartment, day-lit student study rooms and activity and recreational spaces.

The building, as part of a larger master plan, borrows its architectural character from Jones Hall, the earliest campus building.

Balog Steines Hendricks & Manchester wrote the Building Program as part of its services to Youngstown State. The firm also wrote specifications for all interior furnishings and selected all lobby and study room furnishings.
