Fuller Hall renovations will be completed for the fall semester of 2018. Originally planning for a full-scale update of the interior, including electrical and plumbing updates, the update includes mostly critical infrastructure repairs and improvements to the building interior — new flooring, new paint, new cabinetry paint, and all new flooring. The suites now have new carpet and luxury vinyl tiles, and all bathroom finishes were resurfaced with a paint application for like-new tiles and tubs.
The decision to scale down the original renovation plan was a strategic one, and the renovations completed so far provide extended life of the building and improved aesthetics of the interior, all without a multi-million dollar investment. The $2 million project was completely financed through operating budgets.
Fuller Hall originally housed married students. But Boyce is quickly outgrowing Mullins, so the updated Fuller will serve as rollover housing as Boyce and Southern continue to grow.
The east wing of Fuller Hall is complete, and students moved in November 2017. By the end of the project, Fuller Hall will house 97 renovated suites.
