The residence has been recently renovated and houses up to 36 students, according to online floor plans.
Officials made significant “upgrades” to the JJ building over the summer, completing its transition from fraternity housing to general student housing.
Officials have updated the flooring, paint and furnishings on the F Street townhouse to meet the current standards of the dorm, said Assistant Dean of Students Greg Rheault. Rheault said officials have also replaced furniture and improved heating, ventilation and air conditioning in other residential halls like Somers Hall, and that “many” other halls have been repainted and received updates from their waterproofing and their household appliances.
“The JJ building was a former fraternity housing that needed to be significantly modernized to accommodate student housing in general,” Rheault said in an email.
The JJ Building is a three-story townhouse that can accommodate up to 36 students, according to the floor plans on the Campus Living and Residential Education website.
Scott Burnotes, vice president of security and facilities, said earlier this week that GW’s upgrades to campus HVAC systems are still a “work in progress.”
