Greensburg, PA – On October 4, only one week after the opening celebration for the school’s newest residence hall, Farrell Hall, the Seton Hill University Board of Trustees approved financing for a second new residence hall on Seton Hill's Greensburg, Penna. campus.

The new hall will be built near the newly opened Farrell Hall on the upper section of Seton Hill’s campus. The 142-bed hall will open in the fall of 2005, and 142 new parking spaces will be added to Seton Hill’s campus in conjunction with the hall’s construction. Funding for the project will come from tax-exempt bank financing.

“The new hall will help us meet the future demand for residence spaces due to increased enrollment,” said University President JoAnne Boyle, “and it’s design and placement will allow it to fit into our campus with the same graciousness as Farrell Hall.”
