Bean Hall has newly renovated community spaces and room finishes, and it houses several Academic Residential Communities.

As part of the renovation, the new Bean Hall commons area features generous studying and social spaces, as well as faculty offices and classrooms to support the academic mission of the university. In one of the faculty offices, you will find Bean Hall’s faculty fellow, David McCormick, professor of biology and director of the Institute of Neuroscience.
