Construction and Renovation Projects

Crown College Residence Hall Renovations

March 2017

Beginning June 2017, and continuing in a phased approach, each of the residence hall buildings at Crown College will be renovated to update and improve residential rooms for students. The renovation project will take place over a three-year period during which one residence hall building at a time will be offline and unoccupied while renovations are completed.

The project will commence with Leonardo House being offline and undergoing renovations from summer 2017 until the middle of winter quarter 2018. Once the renovated Leonardo building is ready to be occupied, residents of Galen House will be reassigned to spaces in Leonardo for the remainder of the 2017-18 academic year. Galen will then remain offline for the remainder of the year while it undergoes renovations.

We appreciate Crown community’s patience and understanding of noise and other construction impacts during the renovation process.

Project Background and Scope

The goals of this major maintenance project are to:

The buildings incorporated in the project are the eight Crown residence halls (constructed in 1967) as well as the Leonardo apartments (constructed in 1968).

Each residence hall was originally designed to include one apartment (originally intended for live-in staff); the project will integrate these apartments with the residence halls and by doing so, will add a total of 22 bed spaces.

The Leonardo apartments will be converted to serve the live-in staff need.
