After a year of use, the new Residence Halls Complex at Waynesburg College has been proclaimed an overwhelming success by the students who called it home.
The complex introduced a new housing concept to the campus: a blend of selected components of apartment-style buildings with more traditional student-housing elements. The new buildings provide more contemporary CAPACITY156COST PER SQ FT$116.00FEATURED IN2004 Architectural Portfolio spaces, important marketable amenities, and a unique, efficient arrangement of personal and common spaces for each student resident.
The building exteriors reflect the traditional architectural style of the campus with details appropriate for the visibility the complex enjoys. The three small buildings follow the building scale dictated by the existing campus and provide the ability to group students into smaller communities.
