This complex of dormitories was created in response to the large influx of students in the 1960s and contains five twenty-two story towers, twelve low-rise residence halls, and two dining commons.  It accommodates 5,400 students and staff.  Hugh Stubbins, who also designed the [[f:franklin_dining_commons|Franklin Dining Commons]], set out to create a beautiful contemporary design, virtually a small town for students.  The towers provide spectacular views and are a dramatic and highly visible landmark for the University.  This complex of dormitories was created in response to the large influx of students in the 1960s and contains five twenty-two story towers, twelve low-rise residence halls, and two dining commons.  It accommodates 5,400 students and staff.  Hugh Stubbins, who also designed the [[f:franklin_dining_commons|Franklin Dining Commons]], set out to create a beautiful contemporary design, virtually a small town for students.  The towers provide spectacular views and are a dramatic and highly visible landmark for the University.
