The East Dormitory is the first structure necessary for Newberry College to implement their new master plan, which previously determined a need for additional housing as well as a desire to maintain the cohesive nature of the campus. The master plan determined that ultimately siting two new dormitories on the existing baseball field would help in creating a pedestrian connection between the original quadrangle area and the music school. This facility is located close to the main part of campus to foster the living/learning community that is found at Newberry College. The architectural form is intended to embody the historic and collegiate feel of the campus. The interior is designed to offer a new standard of living. Four person suites are arranged with two bedrooms opening to a central study/living area. Common areas include a lobby, laundry, multipurpose room, and a study lounge on each floor.
