This Collegiate Gothic complex features residence rooms, apartments, offices, dining halls, a library, a theatre, a seminar room and several monumental student common rooms. The centerpiece of the complex is Holder Memorial Tower, a campus landmark that rises majestically 145 feet above the campus. This massive renovation project included structural repairs to the load-bearing, stone-masonry tower; exterior restoration of the buildings; and a combination of restoration and modernization of the student residence and dining facilities to meet the University’s four-year residential college plan. All mechanical, electrical, access, safety and data systems were upgraded and threaded through the existing fabric and a new underground utility building was created.
