UNCG Facilities Design and Construction will coordinate the renovation of this residence hall similar to what they did for Reynolds Residence Hall this past year, says Fred Patrick, director of Facilities Design & Construction. Grogan Hall, which opened in the early 1960s, will receive a new electrical service and a new emergency electrical generator. The heating and air conditioning systems will be replaced, and new mechanical units will be installed in all of the student rooms. The bathrooms will be completely renovated with new showers, lavatories, and toilet facilities. Student room corridors will receive a new coat of paint and new carpet. Student rooms will be given a new coat of paint, new carpet, reworked individual closets, and new light fixtures. Grogan Hall’s first floor will be modified and expanded to enclose the existing exterior, covered patio on the east end of the building. This patio will be enclosed with aluminum and glass exterior walls to create a new lounge for the Living/Learning Communities and additional office space. On the lower level, the game room and kitchenette will be renovated as well.

Grogan Residential College will be housed temporarily in the newly renovated Reynolds Hall during this year.
