The residence hall was recently renovated and houses up to 36 students, according to online floor plans.

Officials conducted significant “improvements” to Building JJ over the summer, finishing its transition from fraternity housing to general student housing.

Officials updated the flooring, painting and furniture in the F Street townhouse to meet current residence hall standards, Assistant Dean of Students Greg Rheault said. Rheault said officials also replaced furniture and improved heating, ventilation and air conditioning in other residential halls like Somers Hall, and “many” other halls were repainted and received updates to their waterproofing and appliances.

“Building JJ was former fraternity housing that needed to be significantly updated to accommodate general student housing,” Rheault said in an email.

Building JJ is a three-story townhouse capable of housing up to 36 students, according to floor plans on the Campus Living and Residential Education website.

Scott Burnotes, the vice president for safety and facilities, said earlier this week that GW’s upgrades to HVAC systems across campus are still a “work in progress.”
