The renovation and addition to College Hall breathed new life into the 40-year-old facility and created a welcoming and vibrant environment on the Blue Bell, PA campus. The full-scale renovation transformed the aged, insular building into a bright and open mixed-use facility. Main level functions include a One-Stop Enrollment Center, Success Center, the library, and President's Office suite. The lower level houses student activities, dining, a conference center and administrative areas. Group collaborative spaces are scattered throughout the facility to foster communication and team activities.
A contemporary architectural vocabulary, coupled with state-of-the-art technology, attracts students and serves as a strong tool for both recruitment and retention of students. With creative phasing options, the building's operations continued uninterrupted during construction.
