New Residence Hall Welcomes Students

Posted August 31st, 2015 at 6:07 pm.

Over the last few days, students have settled into the first new residence hall to be built on campus since 1969.

The hall, which has yet to be named, is made up of 101 single occupancy rooms. Combined with the new Cook Center, the new hall increases the College’s housing capacity by more than 50 students.

The new hall features beautiful views of Rockefeller and other parts of Bryn Mawr’s historic campus from two glass-walled lounges as it turns the corner at Yarrow St. and Merion Ave.  The entire dorm complex is 100 percent accessible thanks to an elevator that serves all three floors.  Each floor also features a separate TV lounge and a laundry room. A central courtyard is accessible to all students and will allow for outdoor dining hall seating.

Philadelphia-based Atkin Olshin Schade Architects worked with the College on the building design. Hunter Roberts Construction Group was the principal construction contractor.
