Outstanding Facilities

From new residence halls and dining areas to renovated classrooms, newly built educational centers and a brand new, 15,000-square-foot fitness facility, the College has invested millions of dollars to provide students with the best and most effective learning and recreational opportunities. Six new facilities were completed in 2007, and several others were finished in 2008. Since then, the College opened two new buildings: The Marion and Wayland H. Cato Jr. Center for the Arts and the School of Sciences and Mathematics Building. In addition, the Office of Admissions moved into it’s renovated facility on George St., which is projected to receive LEED Silver status.

  • The School of Business benefits from two new facilities, the four-story Beatty Center with innovative smart classrooms and the Tate Center, the first of its kind in the state.
  • New residence facilities, including the George Street Apartment Complex and the Liberty Street Residence Hall, offer students unprecedented comfort and style.
  • Randolph Hall – the College’s oldest building – underwent an extensive renovation in 2011-12.
  • TD Arena, completed in 2008, is a 5,000-seat athletic facility that serves as home to the men's and women's basketball and women's volleyball teams.
