Enrollment Growth Prompts Construction of New Residence Hall
What's New, 2012-04-11
Over the past ten years, Walsh University enrollment has grown by an astounding 81 percent. This growth has prompted the construction of a new three-story residence hall to accommodate the need for additional student housing on campus. The 29,000 square-foot addition will be built adjacent to the east side of Lemmon Hall and connected by the first floor to the existing building.
The three-story, 29,000-square-foot, 66-bed addition would be integrated architecturally into Lemmon Hall and will incorporate the same suite style of rooms. Each suite will include two double bedrooms, living room, private bathroom and kitchen facilities that come equipped with a refrigerator and oven. The building will be integrated into an existing slope at the site and will include a lower-level entrance, with classrooms, offices and a community room.
The new commons building, which has not yet been named, is expected to open in time for the 2012-13 school year.
