New Residence Hall Opens in Fall 2010
April 23, 2010
To meet growing enrollment needs, Maryville University has announced it will open a new student residence facility, Maryville Hall, in time for the fall 2010 semester. Maryville Hall will provide about 250 students with a safe, comfortable environment featuring a wide array of amenities.
Situated within walking distance of all campus buildings, Maryville Hall is located on Maryville Centre Drive, near I-64 and Woods Mill Road. Renovation of the facility, formerly a Courtyard by Marriott hotel, is currently underway.
“Maryville University continually strives to provide the best possible experience for its students. For many of them, that experience includes living on campus,” said Mark Lombardi, president. “The refurbished hotel facility offers many positive attributes for student housing. The building, adjacent to our main campus, is in excellent physical condition.”
Maryville currently provides two residence halls and five apartment buildings for students choosing to live on campus. At 64,744 square feet, the three-story Maryville Hall building features 122 rooms. Single, double and triple accommodations will be available to students, each one equipped with a private bathroom. In addition, onsite parking is provided.
The ground floor will offer a spacious lobby for residents to meet, socialize and study, as well as free laundry facilities, a beverage station with free coffee, tea and water, a cardio fitness room, and a “Saints Snack Shop,” offering a limited selection of items. Maryville Hall will also offer a private backyard patio with furniture and a grill. The main Residential Life office will be relocated to the lobby of Maryville Hall.
