Syracuse University Announces Plans to Develop Two New Residence Halls

by Katie Sloan

Syracuse, N.Y. — Syracuse University has announced plans to develop two new residence halls after a comprehensive three-year housing review. The first community will be developed at 700 Ostrom Ave. and will offer 450 beds upon completion. An undisclosed architect has been selected for the project with construction expected to begin this year. Further details on the development were not disclosed. The university congruently announced plans to demolish Marion Hall, Kimmel Hall and an existing dining enter on the corner of Comstock and Waverly avenues to make way for a new residence hall, though a timeline for the development was not disclosed. “Over the years, we’ve made renovations to residence hall bathrooms, and expanded and improved community spaces,” says Chancellor Kent Syverud. “But many of the residence halls on campus have remained largely the same for too long. Today’s students have dramatically different wants and needs for student housing. This ambitious plan will provide our students with the living environments they expect that will allow them to succeed and thrive.” The new residence hall projects are part of a larger 20-year development plan dubbed Campus Framework.
