Amy BadalAn outstanding residential environment is essential to Bucknell's academic and educational mission. Our residence halls are filled with student-led programming and initiatives, which create an appealing living environment and help our students develop as leaders. The social, academic and personal opportunities that flourish in these communities strengthen the entire undergraduate experience. — Amy Badal, Dean of Students

Rethinking Hearth and Home

Just as planned academic buildings seek to better integrate scholarly disciplines, improvements to the residential campus will better integrate academic and non-academic areas.

Four brand-new residence halls and an adjacent student commons will open in August 2015, adding 151,000 square feet of apartment-style living space for 340 juniors and seniors. Located near Bertrand Library and the new academic quad, these facilities will expand student housing options and enhance Bucknell's residential learning environment.

Our last campaign resulted in significant improvements to student life on campus, including the McDonnell residence hall (2000) and the Kenneth Langone Athletic & Recreation Center (2003). Our new residential quad continues the University's investment in the finest living and learning spaces.
