In 1952, Mary Dillingham Frear Hall was built on the same site as the current Frear Hall. It originally housed 144 women, and was named after Mary Dillingham Frear, who served on the Board of Regents for 23 years. It was in use until the early 2000s, then sat empty for 3‐4 years before being demolished in 2006. In 2008, a “new” Frear Hall opened on the same site as the “old” Frear Hall; the new hall is coeducational and houses 810 residents.
Frear Hall provides students with a housing option that combines community and independent living. Residents are able to choose from 4 different unit types, all of which have air conditioners.
It's LEED silver certified which means that it provides standards for environmentally sustainable construction. Frear Hall has fluorescent lighting, which uses less energy. Low-flow plumbing fixtures and recycled carpeting. Even the paint has fewer fumes and less chemicals than something you'd buy at the store. Read more about LEED certification
