Residential Commons Perspectives
April 13, 2011
Thanks to a major gift commitment from the A. Eugene Brockman Charitable Trust, Centre College will soon begin construction of a new type of residence facility on its campus. The planned new residential commons, which has an estimated cost of $15 million, will enable Centre to remain highly residential as it continues to grow gradually over the next several years.
The new residential commons will house approximately 120-130 students and is set for completion by the opening of the 2012-2013 academic year. It will be set on a 4-acre footprint currently occupied by a parking lot near the Jones Visual Arts Center on Beatty Avenue. As with other recent construction projects at Centre, the St. Louis-based architectural firm of Hastings & Chivetta will provide the design.
