Yellowstone Hall - Montana State University

Bringing Green Standards to Student Living: MSU’s Yellowstone Hall earns LEED® Gold status

In 2015, the 115,000-sf Yellowstone Hall was the largest ongoing building project in the state of Montana. The Y-shaped, hybrid structural system dormitory houses 400 Montana State University students and features activity lounges, a kitchen, bike repair room, ski lockers/storage area and ADA-accessible restrooms.

Project Highlights

  • Hybrid structural system consisting of concrete and steel throughout the first and second levels provides solid flexibility and strength while wood with a lightweight concrete overlay on the third and fourth levels provide acoustic separation.
  • Beetle-kill pine wood boards used throughout the building and a solar wall used to pre-heat hot water contributed to the building’s LEED® Gold certification status.
  • Innovative architectural design includes splaying corridors and unique building angles.
