Opened in the fall of 2013, the Global Neighborhood has been the site of several pilot initiatives for the Residential Campus at Elon. The neighborhood has become a premiere global education residential complex, serving as a destination for all members of the Elon community. The Global Commons building, opening this fall, will include a Great Hall with lounge and study spaces, and the neighborhood will be home to the Global Education Center, faculty offices for the Core Curriculum, and the Office of Residence Life.
600 students, mostly first-year students and sophomores, will live in five buildings named for rivers around the world.
