Kamola Hall is a 55,700 square foot, three-story dormitory consisting of four wings. Two wings have an attic fourth floor. The original building was constructed in five phases from 1910–1920.
The renovation removed the entire interior down to the basic structure, except for historic common lounge areas and existing stairs. By reclaiming and redesigning spaces, the bed count was increased from 191 to 250, with a variety of housing types that include suites with two to four bedrooms, and dorm rooms with a bathroom down the hall. The project included programming and pre-design to determine the construction budget.
