This building is the first residence hall built on the Chicago campus to incorporate environmentally friendly design, including a green roof over 10% of the surface. It is the first such university residence hall to be built in the greater Chicago area to be certified under the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) "green building” system.
These environmental friendly elements include recycled carpet, a roof with 1,000 square feet of low-maintenance plants for heating and cooling retention, and toilets with two flush modes.
There are 24 suites for our residents to enjoy apartment-style living with semi-private bedroom and bath, kitchenette and furnished living areas. Laundry facilities are available on each floor.
Each suite is cable and internet ready. Many rooms are equipped with in-closet bicycle racks. Each floor has laundry facilities.
Rubloff Hall is connected to McCarthy Hall on the 2nd floor through The Link. This space is designed as quiet study or reading space for residents. Residents who do not reside in Rubloff or McCarthy Hall can access The Link by signing in at the Rubloff Hall front desk.
