Increased bed capacity and upgrades
The major design goal for the renovations to Awosting Hall is to increase the bed capacity from 204 to 311 with the addition of another floor. The renovations will also upgrade the existing residence hall to improve livability, comply with the current building codes, and improve accessibility.
Under utilized hallway space will be captured to enlarged suite lounges and bathrooms. The rearrangement of space facilitates an increased plumbing fixture capacity in the bathrooms to meet current residence life programmatic requirements. It also updates the suite bathrooms to comply with the accessibility requirements.
