Centennial Hall is a $30 million student housing project that is operated through the ESF College Foundation. Completed in time for the Fall 2011 semester, the facility is named Centennial Hall in celebration of this milestone in the College’s history.
Centennial Hall is an environmentally friendly “green” building that houses 452 ESF students in a combination of residence hall style rooms and student apartments. It is located on the western edge of the ESF campus on Oakland Street, just a short walk down the hill from Baker Laboratory.
The east wing of the four story building houses 280 incoming freshmen, who live in double studio rooms with private baths. The west wing houses 116 upperclassmen in single-bedroom suites with private baths, and houses an additional 56 upperclassmen in 14 four-bedroom/two-bath apartments. Student lounges, laundry facilities, enclosed bicycle storage and other common areas are also included. A professional Resident Director, eight Resident Advisors, office staff and building security staff assist in the management of the facility.
