New Building provides students with the opportunity to create the living environment that best suits their preferences. Like New B, New A is ideally located a short distance from both campuses and only a few steps from nearby restaurants. The San Grato bus stop and the FLP train station are just a short walk away, allowing students to connect to Lugano station or to Ponte Tresa in Italy very quickly. Many students do their shopping in Ponte Tresa. Every New A resident has their own bedroom with a bed, a desk, a chair, bookshelves, a nightstand, and a wardrobe. New Building residents share the common kitchen, living room, and bathrooms with up to five roommates.

New A is the perfect mix for residential living with a little bit of everything for all types of students. New A's suite style apartments give an ambiance that feels like home away from home. With a private bedroom to recharge when needed and a living room with a kitchen for hanging with your roommates, New A gives plenty of opportunities to mingle or enter a state of zen. New A is in the main part of campus, acting as a central hub by being in the same complex as the McNeely Center, next to New B and C, a short stride to Kaletsch Campus, and by local food favorites: Giardino restaurant and That's Amore. Also luckily situated by an AutoPostale stop that goes to centro Lugano along with the local train service (FLP) that goes either to Lugano stazione or the border town of Ponte Tresa. Whether you need to go to class quickly, want to spend time in the city center, or take part in Franklin events and community, New A is perfectly situated for all!
