Newberry College Begins Ninth Residence Hall

NEWBERRY — Newberry College broke ground Friday on its ninth residence hall, the campus’ third and final major construction project launched this spring. The ceremony was held at the corner of Luther St. and Wolves Way, adjacent to the Alumni Music Center.

 

“Living on this campus provided me with relationships, experiences and memories that have stuck with me throughout my life,” said Kevin Steelman '95, member of the Board of Trustees. “That’s why this new residence hall is so important. This will not only be a dorm, but a home for all too short a time, and a formational part of students’ lives.”

 

The apartment-style hall will provide well-needed living space for Wolf Nation's growing population, designed to accommodate 104 students, along with two common study rooms. The building is set to open for occupancy in fall 2023.

 

“[The building’s] prime location will make it an epicenter for campus life, with its proximity to the Alumni Music Center, Eleazer Arena, and Setzler Field,” said Dr. Sandra Rouse, dean of students. “And as our ninth residence hall, it will allow our students more choice and comfort than ever before.”

 

“This residence hall will add much-needed living space — room to learn, room to grow, and room to rest from all that learning and growing,” said sophomore Ishita Singh, student body president for the 2022-23 academic year.

 

The facility is being designed by Ayres & Associates Architects, of Murrells Inlet, and built by Triangle Construction Co., of Greenville.
