Bates College Chase Hall Renovation

May 5, 2022
Campus Avenue EntryConstruction begins this month on a 34,000sf, multi-million-dollar renovation of Chase Hall. Chase Hall is the ninth oldest building at Bates College, originally constructed in 1918. It used to serve as the center for student dining, club activities and an array of social and academic programs. It was a town common, a place where faculty, students and staff came together as a community. In the last decade a new dining facility and mail facility diminished the use of the building as a center of campus life. The renovation of Chase Hall will create a centralized location for student services. The overarching goal is to create a 21st century environment that honors and revitalizes the historic character of Chase Hall, making it again the center of student life at Bates College. Construction will be complete in August 2023.
