RADNOR, Pa. (May 24, 2018)—Yesterday, Cabrini University furthered its Campus Master Plan with a groundbreaking ceremony for a new residence hall.
Site work and construction on the residence hall will officially begin in June, and it is scheduled to be completed by fall 2019.
“This new residence hall better enables us to meet the needs of our changing demographic of students,” said Cabrini University President Donald B. Taylor, PhD. “It’s an opportunity to accommodate the high-demand for on-campus housing in a way that continues to preserve the beauty of our campus—one of the main reasons students request to live here.”
Replacing an older facility, the new residence hall will provide space for 180 beds and additional common areas for residents. Much of the funding for the project was provided last year when the University refinanced its existing debt after receiving a high S&P rating.
Attendees at the ceremony included members of the Cabrini University Board of Trustees, faculty and staff, architect WRT Design, general contractor Irwin & Leighton, engineer SITE Engineering, and property manager AEGIS Property Group.
Judy Trombetta, District Office Director of the Office of Senator Daylin Leach, and Kyle Rice, Legislative Aid for Representative Alex Charlton of the 165th Legislative District, were also in attendance.
During construction of the new residence hall, Cabrini also will be adding a parking structure located on the east side of campus.
