Dowden Hall Expansion
In the fall of 2010 Dowden Hall received a 41,000-square-foot addition. The $19.1 million project, which adds 177 new beds to the 31-year-old residence hall, features a four-story glass entry facade, new common spaces, fitness equipment, and quick dining options. The addition has earned a LEED Gold level by the U.S. Building Council and 96 percent of all construction waste was recylced.
