Kettering College began the first phase of renovations to the third floor of the female residence hall in May 2019.
The third-floor bathrooms, kitchen, lobby area, and the south and west halls now feature refinished floors, with updated ceiling tiles in the kitchen and lobby area. The rooms have been updated with California style closets, built in dressers, new lighting fixtures, memory foam mattresses, hardwood style flooring and Corian countertops for the desks, sinks and dressers.
Kettering Medical Center has funded the renovations, granting Kettering College a $1.2 million project budget, according to Nicholas Henson, director of Finance and Administration at Kettering College. For the first phase of renovations, $340,000 of it was used.
