Project Challenges and Outcomes
Phase 1 of the East Halls project includes the Mid-rise Halls of Stuart, McKean, and Pennypacker Halls. These three existing residence halls will be renovated and receive additions as a part of the East Halls Phase 1 Project. The buildings are eight stories and approximately 67,000 SF. Each hall has 273 beds made up of double occupancy rooms with some Resident Assistant single rooms. In the three halls each floor will have both single user bathrooms that have a shower and toilet to allow for privacy and additional toilet only restrooms. The renovations to Stuart Hall have started as part of Phase 1A with an estimated construction cost of $18 million and be completed in Spring 2018.
