Project Details:

The Clark Hall renovation broke ground in June of 2001 and was completed in August 2002.  Building demolition left only the outside walls and floor slabs. ADA accessibility was achieved with the installation of an elevator, regrading the landscape and redesign of all interior living spaces. Small lounge spaces at the north, south and west side of the building allow natural night to flood the corridors. Kitchenettes for student use are provided on each floor. The larger lounges on the ground floor provide spaces where the entire building community can gather. In addition to the lounge spaces on the ground floor, a laundry room, vending area, full kitchen, bike storage room, residential life office and lobby are provided.
