East Halls

The East Halls renovation project continues with the final phase, involving Hastings, Snyder, and Stone Halls, currently under construction and expected to be completed by the end of the fiscal year 2024. Bigler, Curtin, and Packer Halls completed renovations earlier this year and came back online in time for the fall 2023 semester. 

The renovated halls will receive new and efficient building systems, including climate-controlled living spaces, improved social and residence life programming and meeting spaces, community kitchens, laundry rooms, and shared semi-private bathrooms in the core of each floor.
