Cincinnati, Ohio 2011: Residence & dining hall at Xavier University takes shape

The new residence hall and dining complex at Xavier University is taking shape. I was able to photograph progress on the new building on campus July 7 and July 9, and to say that the land has been transformed from outdated houses-converted-into-offices into a mammoth campus structure in just a little over one year is amazing.

1 A view of the new residence hall and dining complex on July 7.


3 Entrances to the building are marked by these unique archways.

4 Imagine this as a greenspace in just a few months!

To think that 535 students will be living in the new four- to five-level residence hall in just two months is a shocking thought when you peer into the grounds. But step inside, and much of the interior has been completed sans furniture installation.

5 Interior suite appointments will be photographed once furniture is moved in. Photographed July 9.

6 Inside a student lounge.

7 A view of the green roof, with the Gallagher Student Center in the background.

8 All suites come with keycard and button access.

9 A worker tends to a window treatment.

10 A view of the new green roof.

11 A two-story student lounge.

12 Pavers are being installed on the green roof.

The dining hall is much larger than the former Hoff Dining Hall at Cintas. Additions include a dedicated vegan/vegetarian area, a fresh salad station (think Fresh Fusions that was in the Gallagher Student Center), a bakery, a large gas-fired pizza oven and a full pizza bar. Plus, it will be home to one of the only Coke Freestyle vending machines in the area!

15 A pizza oven has been installed!

17 The new floor stain has been applied.

18 This tank collects used vegetable oil for use by third-party vendors.

I hope you enjoyed this tour of the new residence hall and dining complex at Xavier. The next photographic update will be in July after the furniture has been installed, and after the green roof has been sodded.
