New floor plans for Dunster House, currently undergoing renovation, feature the elimination of walk-through bedrooms and a shift away from in-suite bathrooms toward shared hallway baths.
Shaun R. Harper, the Office of Student Life’s inaugural “Scholar-in-Residence,” advocated for “intentional” institutional support as a means of increasing inclusivity on college campuses.
The policy change, which came after students lobbied for the effort, will officially take effect with the spring’s upcoming rooming lotteries, according to Associate Dean of Student Life William Cooper ’94.
Winthrop House and Currier House will provide students with free off-site storage for this summer due to construction projects that will limit storage space traditionally offered on-site.
Preliminary renewal plans were well-received by Winthrop affiliates who said they look forward to expanded student housing and social space.
