Stuyvesant Hall

Location: Deleware, Ohio

Project Owner: Ohio Wesleyan University



This building, which was originally opened in 1931, has been renovated from top to bottom, providing upgraded residences and new common spaces for the students. Furthermore, the building is now fully accessible to people with disabilities and its energy efficiency has been dramatically improved through new heating/air conditioning systems. Each wing of 2-room suites features brand new restrooms, a small study room, and a lounge with tables and microwaves.

The common spaces encourage social interaction at varying levels in the new Stuyvesant Hall. Small groups can utilize the study lounges or the common kitchen; larger lounges accommodate whole-floor activities; and the living room, outdoor terrace with fire pit, and “rathskellar” with casual seating, televisions, gaming, and pool tables support large groups and functions. The renovated Stuyvesant also boasts a coffee shop, centrally located laundry facility, and wellness center, and is expected to achieve LEED Silver certification in recognition of its sustainable design.

Modifying a building of this age for new electrical systems was not without its challenges.  Claypool Electric worked with the University, architect and project management to make the project a success.
