Located on Centennial Campus near the Park Alumni Center, The Point is the new chancellor's residence. Designed by Marvin Malecha, dean of the College of Design, the chancellor’s residence was funded with private donations from more than 70 individuals and businesses. The $3 million project was completed in 2011.

The lower level of the residence – about 5,400 square feet – is the “public” portion of the house, where larger receptions and other events can be held. The roughly 3,100-square-foot second floor is the living quarters. Solar panels and geothermal heating and cooling and sustainable materials are included in the design. The entryway ceiling is made from a cypress tree grown in the university’s Hofmann Forest. You’ll also find poplar trim and locally sourced hardwood floors, along with other wood finishings. Less apparent are the residence’s many environmentally conscious features. It’s built with sustainable materials and uses geothermal heating and cooling. The eye-catching fixtures use long-lasting LED lights.

The Point, which replaces the previous residence, built in 1928, is also designed to last. Malecha has envisioned a 200th anniversary celebration at The Point, 75 years from now.
