Residence Hall Construction & Renovations

Residence Hall Updates & Renovations

In 2013, the university developed a seven year strategy to update and renovate its residential facilities to continue to provide residence halls that help support the academic experience  The type and scope of renovations will vary based upon the building, taking into account feedback from campus residents, current building conditions, system upgrades that may be necessary and availability of funding.  The university kicked-off this cycle in summer of 2014.  Buildings that were updated since this cycle began include:

2014: International House and The Dakota
2015: Building JJ, Mitchell Hall, and Strong Hall
2016: 2109 F St., Thurston Furniture, Madison Furniture, JBKO Floors
2017: JBKO , FSK, and Fulbright Halls.
 
We believe that this strategy for building upgrades will assist us in further enhancing the overall residential experience for our students.
 

These cyclical upgrades are in addition to processes the university already has in place for the ongoing preventative maintenance and repair of its residence halls, response to maintenance request through FixIt, and move-in and move-out inspections to create accountability for the proper care of residential facilities by students.
