Baylor Bears to enjoy newly renovated residence halls

WACO – Students moving into Ruth Collins Residence Hall at Baylor University this fall will see the $41.7 million renovation that has transformed the residence hall known to generations of alumni.

The hall, originally built in 1957, received new community spaces, including a kitchen and dining room. More windows, new hardwood floors, and updated electrical and plumbing infrastructure were also part of the project.

The number of residents decreased from 570 to 466 due to the renovations.

When renovations began in May 2022, many students were rehoused at a SpringHill Suites by Marriott hotel across I-35.

Baylor also began renovating Alexander and Memorial Residence Halls this May, with plans to join the two buildings with a new middle building, the Carona Family Commons. Once those renovations wrap up next summer, Allen, Dawson and Kokernot residence halls are next to be renovated.
