Keefe Hall, the College’s newest residence hall, will be home to about 75 students in its initial semester of occupancy. They are scheduled to move in on February 19 and 26.

Designed to promote a distinctive integration of living and learning, Keefe Hall has a capacity of 117 students in seven units, or “houses.” Six houses accommodate between 17 and 20 students each in single and double rooms. One of these houses features substance-free living with special programming focusing on wellness issues. A seventh, smaller unit is home to the nine members of German House, the building’s first special-interest group.

Each house has a lounge and kitchen area. The building has multiple study areas and two seminar rooms. A spacious commons overlooking the city of Easton is an outstanding venue for a variety of activities. There is also an apartment for a faculty resident.

It is expected that several other special-interest groups will join German House this fall in Keefe Hall, which is particularly well-suited for distinctive living groups centering on academic or cocurricular interests. The office of student residence will soon begin soliciting proposals.

The $7 million, 40,000-square-foot residence hall is named for Harry V. Keefe Jr., trustee emeritus and parent of a Lafayette graduate. Construction began in fall 1997.
