The building is part of a 600-bed, 175,000-square-foot student residence hall and activity center characterized by open spaces, natural lighting, energy-efficient features, and eco-friendly materials.
The facility is expected to be complete at the end of June, allowing for fall 2010 occupancy. The new spaces will help ease an increasing need for on-campus housing requests at the University.
The building is named for Albert Einstein Professor Emeritus C.N. Yang, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist and giant of 20th-century science who founded Stony Brook’s Institute for Theoretical Physics. Yang, who retired from Stony Brook in 1999 and is currently a professor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Tsinghua University, was on hand for the dedication ceremony.
