The demolition of McTyeire Hall is currently underway, a project that will help provide additional space for the future renovation of the Dobbs University Center (DUC).
The removal of the 70-year-old residence hall marks the formal completion of the 2005 Emory University Housing Master Plan, which reflected four major themes:
- Strengthening on-campus living/learning communities;
- Integrating teaching and research to reflect Emory’s mission as a university;
- Allowing “silos” to thrive while bridging them together; and
- Planning comprehensively and in balance with the environment.
The completion of Raoul Hall, a living/learning community with a focus on social entrepreneurship, was the final step in the creation of a new grouping of freshman residence halls— the freshman residential quad — just north of the DUC, says Glenn Kulasiewicz, program manager in the planning, design and construction division of Campus Services.
