Roberts Hall, Bucknell's oldest residence hall, underwent a $15 million renovation in 2016, which brought back some of its original splendor while meeting modern code and comfort standards.

The building provides housing for 136 students, primarily sophomores, in two-, three- and four-person suites, each with a private bathroom and shower. Bucknell earned LEED® Silver certification for the renovation, which added sustainable design features including energy-efficient windows, low-flow plumbing and room-occupancy sensors.

A new outdoor study and meeting space with benches and café tables also was created in a 100-year-old grove of trees encircled by Roberts, Trax Hall, Kress Hall and the Carnegie Building.
