Ohio – A $100 million gift will contribute to Kenyon College’s plans to build three apartment-style residence halls on its South Campus.

Each building will have a capacity of 100 students and be built to gold standards for sustainability. Construction is scheduled to begin following the conclusion of the academic year in spring of 2023.
The location of new buildings behind and offset with Old Kenyon Residence Hall was identified in the most recent campus Master Plan in 2014, which calls for the eventual demolition of the New Apartments, which were constructed nearly 50 years ago.
Bushnell and Manning residence halls will be razed to allow for construction of the new residences, although at this time only the east building, Bushnell, will be replaced.
