Weygand Hall, a new 500-bed residence hall, will go online with the start of the fall semester. A ceremony marking the opening will be held Sept. 25 at 3 p.m.
The building is named for George Weygand, ’53, a beloved figure on campus. Dr. Weygand was a longtime physics professor at Bridgewater who has remained active with the institution since his retirement.
Weygand is a co-ed residence hall that will house 500 upper-class students. Room styles consist of singles and doubles in suite and pod configurations. The most common configuration is a four-bed suite. Weygand Hall is home to the upper-class residential learning communities and the pilot Theme Housing program. It is located on East Campus next to the parking garage and East Hall. Health and Counseling Services is located on the ground floor of the new building.
Weygand Hall is a gold LEED -certified building, boasting many features designed to save energy. (Video by Shawn Finn, ’13, and John Winters, G ’11; photos by Karen Callan; University Advancement)
