Students living in Philip Amsterdam and Munson halls will move into newly renovated rooms this fall.
Carpets were ripped off the floors in Philip Amsterdam Hall and hard surface flooring was installed to update the old flooring. Director of Housing Seth Weinshel said most rooms also received new cabinets, and some bathrooms had new grout laid in the tile.
Kitchen cabinets were replaced in about 47 of Munson Hall’s 72 rooms, Weinshel said. The rest of the kitchen work will finish late next week for residents who opted in for additional work.
Bathrooms received new vanities, lighting, exhaust fans and toilets, and tap-and-enter door locks were installed, Weinshel said.
Munson repairs were allocated about $2.5 million in the 2013 capital budget, out of a total of $4 million set aside for residence hall repairs this year. Carpet replacement across GW this year totals about $100,000 in the 2013 budget.
