Student life and NEC's residential community are at the heart of the Student Life and Performance Center. Floors 5 through 10 (shown in the first floor plan on this page) provide a combination of singles, doubles, and semi-suites, offering students a choice of living options. The sketch on this page shows a typical double bedroom.
Common areas include a large Student Lounge provided on each of these floors, with a generously glazed wall affording views to the East over Back Bay and Boston, a wide-screen TV, and seating for socializing or study.
The fourth floor of the building (shown in the second floor plan on this page) includes a much larger Residence Commons dedicated to all students in the building, with an eat-in kitchen where students can congregate to prepare their own meals and snacks. A laundry area and separate apartment for the Residence Director are also provided on the fourth floor. The West elevation includes a bay window with an overlook to the rest of the NEC campus.
