A new residence hall at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is officially open.

The Prescott Daily Courier reports the Thumb Butte Suites had their grand opening Friday.
University officials say the $20 million facility, which took more than a year to build, has 278 beds.
The 72,000-square-foot (6,689-square-meter) hall contains three study rooms, three lounges, a game room, laundry and fitness facilities and a hospitality area with a kitchen.
It also overlooks Willow Lake.
The dormitory opened in phases beginning in August.
Embry-Riddle now has 16 residence buildings on its campus.
