Roberts Hall

Exterior of Roberts Hall

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 comfort standards.

Roberts provides housing for 136 sophomore students. All floors contain co-ed rooms configured as two-, three- and four-person suites. Each suite comes 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. Together with Kress Hall, Trax Hall and the Carnegie Building, Roberts encircles an outdoor study and meeting space with benches and café tables in the shade of a 100-year-old grove of trees.
