Transylvania University Opens New Residence Halls

In 2014, Transylvania University embarked on an ambitious plan to transform student life on campus by demolishing and replacing three of its aging residence halls. Upon completion of the first hall, University leaders saw an opportunity to make adjustments to the interior design of that building that would enable it to better reflect the Transy brand. Impressed by the interior design services RossTarrant Architects had provided in the past, they reached out to us for help. Working closely with Transylvania University, RossTarrant identified options for cost-effective, impactful adjustments that could help the hall that had already been constructed better meet Transylvania University’s vision. At the same time, we collaborated with the team working on the subsequent two halls to be constructed on campus.

Interior design services for the remaining two halls included the selection of all finishes and furnishings. Lighting, carpet, flooring, paint, hardware and furnishing selections were all designed to convey the sophisticated image Transylvania University sought to project. The result is a cohesive design aesthetic that unifies the residence halls and enhances student life on campus.
