Front view of existing O'Shaughnessy Hall

In 2010 and 2011, Virginia Tech launched its first two residential colleges in East and West Ambler Johnston Halls. In response to the success of these two residential colleges, Housing and Residence Life completed a Residential Financial Plan in 2012 that articulated a hope for converting three current residence halls into Residential Colleges. O'Shaughnessy Hall, built in 1969 in the President's Quad, is home to 341 residents and was identified as the first of three residence halls for conversion into a residential college format. This project will include a major renovation of the 69,200 gross square foot (GSF) residence building to create a faculty principal apartment, five to seven faculty/staff offices, a classroom, a community living room (junior common room), and a small faculty meeting area (senior common room).
