The Res Life team along with several ASUPS students were lucky enough to get a peek at how our new building, Commencement Hall last week. The building is really coming along! Read and see more about the building in the first post about the new building.
Apologies for the blurry and crooked iPhone photos. I was just so excited about the progress my photog skills flew out the window!
With less than a month until student staff arrive, it’s incredible how much progress has been made, and yet how much is yet to be done. Never fear, the project is moving along smoothly and we are all systems go for an August 23rd opening date.

Showers are almost all complete
Yes, that is a heated towel rack
The kitchens are almost complete – with lighting installed and just awaiting appliances (full size refrigerator and range)
A standard single room in Commencement Hall
The colors inside range from this rust color to a rich gray blue (those are bathroom entrances)
The great room in each house really is spacious
The rooms really are “great”
The Tahoma Room will be the newest gathering space on campus – fully equipped with AV/audio built into the room, including a retracting projection screen (located behind this shot)
The fireplace is really coming along
The Tahoma room facing the east. Where the piano will be located, along with some amazing views.
The colonnade on the east side of the building are spacious and let in tons of natural light to the mixed use spaces on the other side of the glass
The building is in great shape and nearly move in ready! The landscaping will prove to be the final touches to finish before the building opens August 23rd!
