Renovations In the Works For East, Pollock Halls

Future Penn Staters got good news today and they don’t even know it — the Board of Trustees will discuss plans for renovations to East and Pollock Halls during its meeting in November, and today approved the addition of a residence hall to North Halls and the renovation of Findlay Commons.

During a presentation on the state of residence halls, Senior Vice President for Business and Finance David Gray noted the need for renovations to Penn State’s most outdated halls. Neither East nor Pollock have undergone any extensive renovations since being built from 1960-66. If approved, the renovations will first tackle five East Halls dorms and continue renovations over the course of 14 years.

Penn State’s recent renovations to South Halls were met with enthusiasm and turned out quite well. Gray did not have any specifications or mock-ups of what the new renovations would include, but should by the next meeting.

As for North and Findlay, Gray compared the new North dorm to one at Michigan with the plan to imitate a similar design. Then, he displayed images of Findlay’s outdated design and infrastructure that causes slowness in accessing food and sitting areas. He said students expect better.

The board next meets November 13-14 to discuss.
