Bosley Hall - New Residence Hall and Dining Facility

Harris Stowe State University

St. Louis, Missouri

Harris-Stowe State University traces its origin back to 1857 when it was founded by the St. Louis Public Schools, becoming the first public teacher education institution west of the Mississippi River, and the 12th such institution in the United States.

The new on-campus residence hall is the second campus housing project in the 153-year-old university’s history. Harris-Stowe first became a residential campus with the opening of the Rev. Dr. William G. Gillespie Residence Hall and Student Center in 2006. The expansion increased enrollment so drastically that the university began planning for a second residence hall shortly after opening Gillespie Hall.

Bosley Hall, the new four-story, 70,000-square-foot environmentally friendly residence hall offers on-campus housing and study spaces for 200 university students and houses the campus’ new dining hall. Bosley Hall was funded through the U.S. Department of Education’s Historically Black College University Capital Financing Program.

Henneman Engineering provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering design services for the new facility. Trivers Associates was responsible for architectural design services.
