Improvements to Jerry G. Bray, Jr. Village (Village I) Planned


A new and improved Bray Village is in the works! All seven buildings in Bray Village are scheduled for facility improvements this fall.  Bray Village includes Birdsong Hall, Aubrey L. Eggleston Commons, Peter D. Pruden Hall (academic building), and four residence halls: Louise W. Eggleston Hall, Abel E. and Clara Eaton Kellam Hall, Margarette Hanes Old Hall, and the Paul Howard Rose Hall.

The improvements include full replacement of all showers and bathrooms, painting, and corrective maintenance care.  Recently, external painting and blacktopping to the back of Bray Village from Smith Drive was completed.

Starting with Rose Hall, each residential building will be taken offline on a rotating basis for a period of two-three months while upgrades are made. After Rose Hall is completed, attention will turn to Kellam Hall. Students residing in Kellam will be reassigned to Rose to enjoy the enhanced facilities. Similarly, students in Old and Eggleston Halls will move to the most recently completed building as the project progresses.

From ceiling to floor, tiles to fixtures, these improved spaces will have a positive impact on the student experiences of our newest Marlins who reside in these residence halls.
