Architect: LTL Architects
Total Project Cost: $7.4 Million
Constructed in 2003 on the campus of The College of Wooster, Bornhuetter Hall is a 183 bed residence hall for first year students. Rising four stories in height, the two building wings are joined by a shared exterior courtyard on the ground level and a Lounge with glass walls on each floor.
These glass-walled lounges are designed to allow each floor to visually interact with the others. Made possible by a generous $5 million naming gift from Trustee Ronald Bornhuetter (Class of ’53), his wife Carol, along with their children in conjunction with a generous 50th Reunion monetary gift from the Class of 1953, this beautiful building has 48,000 square feet of living space altogether.
Built at a cost of $40,000 per bed, the resident can house 185 students. Twenty one to thirty one students reside on each floor, with two students in each double room. Each floor of the residence hall has its own shared lounge and separate study nook.
There are seven lounges and six study nooks in the building altogether. In addition to the lounges on each floor, there is a formal lounge for the entire residence hall and a separate TV lounge with cable television.
There is also a state-of-the-art multipurpose room that features Ethernet computer network access; kitchen facilities including refrigerator, convenience areas with microwaves and sinks, and vending machines; a nearby laundry room; and gorgeous views of the college lawn and oak trees.
Spacious Bornhuetter Hall is the largest residence hall on the campus of The College of Wooster. It is the second newest hall, with only Gault Manor (2008) being constructed and opened for use by Wooster’s students more recently.
Students who live in Bornhuetter Hall have ample space in which to sleep, study and enjoy their college experience with their friends. The glass walled lounges and outdoor courtyard make the outdoors part of the living environment.
