University of Cincinnati Marian Spencer Hall Mixed-Use Housing

Cincinnati, Ohio

Marian Spencer Hall capitalizes on the University of Cincinnati’s unique setting and connects its resident community to the energy and joy of city living.

The dining room is the heart of this home away from home. Flexible, communal areas on the living floors can accommodate groups of varying sizes and activity levels; residents congregating in shared kitchens enjoy a unique amenity—sweeping vistas of the UC campus itself.

By activating pedestrian pathways outside and one-of-a-kind views from within, Marian Spencer Hall celebrates urban campus living. Also home to student life services, the building acts as a hub for the residential section of campus by keeping students immersed in programming outside of the classroom.

EHDD served as architectural designer through design development, with GBBN as the architect through construction administration.
