New Living Learning Suites Phase 2
About the Project
With the completion of Phase 1 Housing (Presidents Hall, Seavers Hall, and McLean Hall II), Shippensburg University Housing will be building three more buildings in its second phase of construction. These new halls will be built on the west side of the university's campus. These buildings will be named after the recently demolished Kieffer, Lackhove, and McCune Halls.
Phase 2 is expected to be completed and fully operational with the opening of the Fall 2014 semester. More updates will follow about living in the halls and the introduction of a brand-new suite unit type.
The Design and Development Team has worked closely with the SU campus community to ensure that the proposed facilities not only accommodate the desired range of housing options, but also provide state-of-the-art facilities that will continue to meet the changing needs of the student body. Building common areas were carefully evaluated to ensure that they would accommodate a wide range of anticipated student activities and allow for flexible program space. Proposed unit plans and room types were also studied in detail, and were subjected to market studies and student surveys to ensure that the final development program would be desirable to the broad student population.
