It’s official! As promised and right on schedule, Capitol’s most recent construction project will be complete this August. And we’re inviting you to come out and see it!
On August 16th at 10:00 a.m. we will officially open Innovator’s Hall, our stunning new residential housing facility with apartment style room blocks. Join us for a ribbon cutting ceremony, tour the new building, and enjoy light refreshments as we show you around the place that many of our students will come to call home.
Innovator’s Hall features a laundry room for every floor and beautiful views of the campus and surrounding forest. With dedicated study rooms on each floor, a central gaming center, mailboxes right downstairs, and plenty of space in each apartment for students to hang out, we want to move in ourselves!
Construction on Innovator’s Hall began last July as part of Capitol’s master campus plan to provide more and greater opportunities to our students. The new residential hall will house 220 students, allowing Capitol to expand and grow to meet rising enrollment.
Expanding the residential facilities on campus is part of a broad strategic plan that also includes renovated labs and classroom facilities, enhanced online learning platforms, continued partnerships with industry, federal agencies and other educational institutions, and a higher international profile.
Brandi McKee, director of student life and residential services, said she can’t wait for students to start moving in, in the fall. “To have everyone under one roof is going to provide us with some amazing new opportunities to bring our students together. The RA’s and I are already talking about having more on-campus events and even doing floor by floor activities. It’s going to be the place to be.”
“We are so excited to declare Innovator’s Hall officially open,” said Melinda Bunnell-Rhyne, vice president of student engagement and university development. “We hope you can join us on August 16th to come and see it for yourself!”
