Indiana State University Erickson HallTerre Haute, Indiana
Initially a residence hall, named in memory of Martina C. Erickson who served as the first Dean of Women from 1905 to 1910, Erickson Hall became an office building following a decline in enrollment and is once again converted back to student housing.
The 6-story renovation turns Erickson Hall into a 260-bed residence that offers double occupancy rooms clustered around a pod shared toilet/shower room. In addition to the pod style living units, the facility features classrooms, support spaces and the Office of Residential Life Services.
The first floor contains a student front porch, snack area, laundry room, apartments, common space and other support rooms. The Office of Residential Life Services is also housed on the first floor. The lower level opens up to daylight and has 3 multi-use classrooms.
An integral part of Indiana State University’s First Year Initiative, whose goal is to provide amenities that will make transition to College life smooth for freshmen students, Erickson Hall is a coed residence that offers Academic Theme Communities for Criminology/ Criminal Justice, Exploratory Studies and Psychology.
