Providence College in Providence, R.I., plans $54 million residence hall

March 11, 2022
Adding the 123,000-square-foot Shanley Hall will enable the college to renovate Aquinas Hall, which was built in 1939.

Providence College is planning to build a $54 million, six-story residence hall on its Providence, R.I., campus. 

The 123,000-square-foot residence hall, to be named Shanley Hall, will provide living spaces for about 360 sophomores, reports The Providence Journal

College officials say the new building will enable Providence College to move students out of Aquinas Hall so the 83-year-old facility can be renovated.

Plans for Shanley Hall include lounges, study rooms, alcoves, communal kitchens and meeting rooms, among other amenities.

Providence College needs approval from the City Plan Commission before it can move ahead.

If approved, the residence hall could open in September 2023.
