Newly Named Residence Halls to Welcome Students in 2024-25

As part of Syracuse University’s strategic housing plan and in response to student needs and feedback, two new residence halls will open their doors to students in the upcoming 2024-25 academic year. Orange Hall is the new name for the former Sheraton hotel, which is in the midst of its conversion that secures its history as a welcoming and vibrant space newly redesigned to support students. The building, which will contain the University’s sixth all-you-care-to-eat dining center, will house nearly 400 sophomore students beginning in Fall 2024.

Miron Victory Court Construction

Campus Planning, Design and Construction and our local contractors continue the work on the Miron Victory Court addition to the JMA Wireless Dome. To allow for site work at the north end of the addition, the current fenced area needs to be expanded. This will allow for new hardscape in front of Miron Victory Court and Dome gates N, E and P.

The expanded fence footprint will mean that pedestrians can no longer walk west towards the Dome between the Physics Building and the Barnes Center at the Arch. All pedestrian traffic heading west will need to pass north of the Physics Building (the Quad side) or south of the Barnes Center at the Arch (the SUNY ESF side). This closure will remain in effect until mid-August when the area will be opened back up for the fall semester.

We appreciate your patience while we complete this work and continue to progress on this exciting project. Please Dave Warren, with Campus Planning, Design and Construction, at 315.632.5238 or with any questions or concerns.
