Fauver Field Residences
Honored with Silver LEED designation

The Fauver Field Residence Project is the result of a comprehensive housing study undertaken by Wesleyan University Residential Life, Construction Services, and Ayers Saint Gross - Campus Masterplanning Consultant.  Three sites were considered in the study.  Fauver Field was selected as the site for the Frosh facility.  Two other sites were considered for the Upperclass facility including the Southern portion of the Vine Street Parking Lot and the North East section of Warren Street prior to the final selection of Fauver Field.  Fauver Field was identified as the preferred site for the Upperclass and Frosh student housing.

The Fauver Field site offers many opportunities including improving both the landscape at the corner of Cross and Vine and the connection to the community.  Additionally, this location provides a much needed connection to the core of campus at the intersection of Cross and Vine Streets by removing the existing retaining wall, which presently acts as a visual and physical barrier.
