Newark, NJ

New Jersey Institute of Technology




Maple Hall is a 548-bed, on-campus student development delivered via a public private partnership (P3) between RISE and the New Jersey Institute of Technology.

Maple Hall at NJIT addresses the important campus intersection of Warren St. and Wickliff St. with an 8-story tower of floor-to-ceiling glass at the community’s main entrance. This prominent corner element serves as a campus beacon as well as captures and maximizes views of New York City and Newark skylines from a common floor lounge on each of the residential floors above the main entry.

The programming includes a mix of private and shared bedroom apartments and 70 structured parking spaces as well as space for retail.

The planning and design of this on-campus student housing focuses on an interactive and collaborative approach with the university. The layout creates an attractive, elevated courtyard that opens to the west and will enjoy abundant sunshine as well as provide student residents with a fantastic open-air amenity for gathering, recreation, and engagement.

The original “Warren Street Public School” arched entryway will be integrated into the entry area as well as a large wall mural that will feature a historic timeline of many of Newark’s public schools.

RISE approached this project with focus on implementing NJIT’s 2020 Strategic Vision through a complimentary design that highlights both the historic and current facets of campus.
