Opened in 1999 as a sophomore residential community, the Danieley Center currently houses 812 students – mostly sophomores, with some first-year students and some juniors and seniors. The neighborhood was named for President Emeritus Dr. Earl Danieley, who still joins first-year students and their families on move-in day. The buildings in the neighborhood surround Lake Verona, named for Dr. Danieley’s wife.
In the coming years, the mix of programs and experiences will increasingly support the Danieley Center theme of leadership and wellness.
The Danieley Center features three styles of residential facilities: 8-person "flats," 4-person single-bedroom apartments, and 4-person double-bedroom apartments.
The Flats (buildings G-N) for sophomores and some first-year students are suite-style living with four double rooms, two and a half bathrooms, a common space (in most flats), and a kitchenette (no stove included in most flats). Each room is furnished with a bed, desk, and wardrobe.
Apartments A-F, for sophomores or upper class students, have two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, a dining room and kitchen. Each suite is furnished with living room furniture, bedroom furniture (bed, desk, and dresser); dishwasher; refrigerator; stove and full access to the campus computer network.
Apartments O and P, for sophomores or upper class students, have four single bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room and kitchen. Each unit is furnished with bedroom furniture (bed, desk, and dresser); living room furniture; washer and dryer; refrigerator, stove and full access to the campus computer network.
The Daniel Commons has a workout facility, gathering space with fireplace, computers/print station, and the campus location of Qdoba and Einstein Bro Bagels to open in fall 2015.
Some of the flats buildings have open breezeways and others have enclosed common rooms.
The Danieley Center neighborhood has outdoor basketball and volleyball courts and a Frisbee golf course.
