Chancellor and Mrs. Woodson invite all NC State faculty and staff to their annual Holiday Open House, usually in December. Park at the residence or in the nearby Park Alumni Center lot. Shuttle service also runs between the main and Centennial Campus and The Point. While you nosh, you can enjoy views of Lake Raleigh and appreciate the finer points of one of NC State’s latest architectural additions, The Point.
Designed by Marvin Malecha, Dean Emeritus of the College of Design, the chancellor’s residence was funded with private donations from more than 70 individuals and businesses. The $3 million residence includes 5,400 square feet for public events on the lower level and 3,100 square feet of living quarters upstairs.
“We asked, ‘Who owns this house?’” Malecha said. “Though the chancellor lives there, the house truly belongs to the NC State family.” For insight about what goes into designing a place that’s both public and private, read Malecha’s Q&A in DesignLife, which features more photos of the residence.
