CALTECH BECHTEL RESIDENCE

Designed to LEED Platinum standards, the 211-bed Bechtel Residence located at the northeast side of the Caltech campus was developed to house undergraduates from all class levels along with two faculty in residence, a half-dozen graduate resident associates, and a residential life coordinator. The residence also includes five kitchen and lounge areas, four common areas with study rooms, six laundry rooms, a dining facility, a large central courtyard, and a balcony overlooking the courtyard.
