Information on Hastings Renovation Work (taking place Summer 2017)

hastings-hall-furniture-sample-layouts

Please see the image above for a sample of new furniture configurations that are planned in the suites.

Hastings Hall will be the focus of cosmetic updates during the summer of 2017.  The updates will include new carpet, paint, millwork touch-up, window treatments and new furniture.  The furniture will be replaced in the bedrooms and the living room spaces. The window seating will receive new cushions that will be a compliment to the living room furniture, along with touch-ups to the wood trim millwork. In addition to the cosmetic updates to the building, there will be some infrastructure upgrades.  These infrastructure upgrades include wiring updates and increased Wi-Fi coverage.  The Wi-Fi coverage will be increased by the installation of wireless access points in each of the living room spaces. Hastings will close on May 13th and is planned to reopen on August 14th.
