Stetson University plans to build 305-bed residence hall

April 16, 2024
The four-story, 88,000-square-foot facility is scheduled to open on the Deland, Florida, campus in 2026.

Stetson University plans to break ground this summer on a 305-bed residence hall in the center of its Deland, Florida, campus.

The university says the four-story, 88,000-square-foot residence hall is set to open in 2026 near the Carlton Union Building and Templeton Fountain.

The residence hall will offer a mix of traditional double-occupancy rooms, shared suite-style rooms and individual rooms along with community kitchens, lounges and other common areas. A new campus master plan calls for more landscaping and curved pedestrian walkways through the area.

Stetson has other facility projects in the works:

  • Renovate Elizabeth Hall with new restrooms and an elevator.
  • Begin the first phase of renovations at the Edmunds Center. The upgrades will provide new restrooms, new seating and a new sound system. A new elevator will be added by summer 2025.
  • Rebuild Hulley Tower. The project will restore the tower to its original 116-foot height and add a 52-bell carillon.
