Slusher Hall Repairs

About the Project

Slusher Hall was constructed in 1972 as a 126,000 gross square feet residence hall with 630 beds. The university has been implementing normal maintenance to Slusher Hall to keep it in service but does not plan to upgrade the facility with refurbishments or renovations. The university’s long-range facility plans include demolishing Slusher Hall at the earliest time permanent replacement beds can be constructed, which are now programmed into Phase I of the Student Life Village. The scope of work includes repairs to 38,000 square feet on floors one through 12 of the tower, which will allow the building to sustain operations until Phase I of the Student Life Village is complete.
