560 Lincoln is the first residence hall to be constructed as part of the housing master plan. It will be located on the north side of campus just north of Kemper Hall, where a string of old residence halls known as Peanut Row was once located. These halls were demolished in the fall of 2013, as part of the master plan.

560 Lincoln will be a 7-story building (4 stories in some parts) with suite-style housing for 422 beds. The active ground floor will feature open lounges and flexible multi-use space that encourages campus wide connections. Suite-style living areas will feature ample study, meeting, social, and common lounge space that builds a sense of community.
