BOLD HALL EXPANSION BEGINS


4/10/2002

Pittsburgh, April 2--La Roche College has launched efforts to address the growing demand for on-campus student housing. Preliminary site work is underway for an expansion of Bold Hall, an $8 million project that will create a new wing to the residence hall. The new addition will contain living space for nearly 200 students and is scheduled for completion in January 2003.

The construction project will create new traffic patterns on campus. The main thoroughfare on the East Campus will be closed to thru-traffic. Cars will be rerouted around the main parking lot that is adjacent to the Provincial House. In addition, the parking spaces in the upper tier of the lot adjacent to the Palumbo Science Center will not be available.

The Bold Hall expansion project is part of Phase I of the College’s master plan, which was approved by the Board of Trustees in February. The master plan addresses the College’s need for additional facilities so that La Roche can support an enrollment of 3,000 students in the coming years. The Zappala College Center extension is also a component of Phase I. That project is scheduled for completion in August of this year. It will include more than a dozen new classrooms, faculty offices, seminar rooms and an updated bookstore. <
