On the first floor, students have access to a fully equipped electronic classroom and two lounges. There are two lounges and two practice rooms on the second floor. The third floor is home to the apartment housing North’s Faculty Head of House in addition to a newly expanded central lobby. The sixth floor houses a central atrium and kitchen for use by all residents. The building is fully air-conditioned and wireless. Corridors, common areas, and student rooms are carpeted.
