New Residence Hall

New Hall's exterior rendering

The University of Evansville is partnering with Groundswell, Servitas, CSO Architects, and Keystone Construction to develop a new residence hall on campus. The new hall will feature 293 beds and will have a mix of four and six-bedroom pod structures with enhanced technology and space. The pod concept meets the preferences of current and future generations of students who desire both a greater degree of privacy along with enhanced spaces to gather and socialize.

Pod Structure:

  • Four-bedroom pods contain four single bedrooms with two bathrooms.
  • Six-person pods consist of three double bedrooms with two bathrooms and separate vanity/sink area.
  • All pods have a shared living room and kitchenette, which includes a sink and refrigerator.

Location: The new hall will be located on Walnut Street where the current Brentano and Morton Residence Halls currently reside.

Size: A four-story building totaling 83,000 square feet with a central courtyard.

Cost: Approximately $18 Million financed with tax-exempt debt. Future debt service is funded through student housing fees.

Timeline: Brentano and Morton Residence Halls will be demolished in May 2021 after students depart this spring. The expected completion date for the new construction is August 2022.

2021-2022 Housing Registration: Due to this construction, Brentano and Morton will not be eligible for housing registration. We apologize for the inconvenience and know many of you may have called Morton and Brentano home. For more information for students and parents or to learn more about locations and options for housing, please refer to our Residence Halls 2021-22 Webpage.
