One of the largest dormitories in Pennsylvania's state university system opens this weekend.

Kutztown University will welcome 856 students into Dixon Hall.

The new residence hall has a retail and convenience store, an ice cream shop, and an amphitheater.

Kutztown University says enrollment is up every year and occupancy in the residence halls has always been 100 percent.

Officials describe Dixon Hall as a junior style suite building, with two single rooms or two double rooms sharing bathrooms.

The suites and junior suites are offered to upper classmen or honors students.

The building is loaded with technology to keep students safe. Two full-time building directors will live in Dixon Hall, and it will have 40 student employees.
