GW to Rip Down and Rebuild Residence Hall

May 20, 2013

GW’s much-maligned residence hall for graduate students, the Hall on Virginia Avenue, will likely be demolished and get a nearly $35 million makeover starting next summer. The Board of Trustees approved $2 million to plan the building’s new design Friday, paving the way for a more modern residence hall featuring collaborative work space, aimed at drawing top graduate students. Construction crews will break ground next summer on the historic building that served as a hideout for one of the convicted conspirators in the Watergate scandal. It is expected to be finished by 2016, pending approval from District agencies and another funding green light from the Board of Trustees next year. (Hatchet)
