Colby Hall Renovation


Scope: The renovation of Colby Residence Hall, an all-female dormitory, began in May 2014 after the end of the spring semester. The exterior of the building remained the same with the exception of a new, grander entrance that includes a centered stairway and a surrounding short, landscaped wall. However, the interior was gutted and completely redesigned, providing approximately 350 beds, with a mixture of double and suite style rooms, including super suites. The updates include the addition of a study lounge, common rooms on each floor, and a more centralized set of stairs. In addition, a new theatre in the basement and a printing station on the first floor were added. There are only two restrooms on each floor, but each restroom is larger than before, with more toilets and showers. Colby Hall was ready for occupancy in August, prior to the start of the Fall 2015 semester.
