New Residence Hall, Student-Housing Complex Named

The new residence hall to be constructed on the west end of Pennsylvania College of Technology’s main campus will be named Dauphin Hall, and the entire complex within which it will be situated encompassing Rose Street Apartments and College West Apartments will be known as Rose Street Commons, the college administration has announced.

The decision was made with considerable input from students and staff within Residence Life. All residence-hall buildings in that area are named for Pennsylvania counties (Clinton, Delaware, Juniata, Lancaster and York).The new building will be the center of student life within the area and will include a dining unit, offices, Fitness Center annex, meeting rooms and lounge.

The term “commons” is defined as “belonging to an entire community and sharing a common culture.” This definition mirrors the goal of having students who live in the area become a cohesive community focused on their educational and developmental aspirations.

Construction for Dauphin Hall is expected to begin in the next few weeks and will be completed for the Fall 2010 semester.
