Providence Mulls Plans for New Residence


With the new school year underway, Providence University College is facing the challenging task of rejuvenating portions of its campus after a summer fire destroyed Bergen Hall, the men’s dormitory. As part of its effort to move forward, President David Johnson has appointed a task force for campus redevelopment.

“Although the Bergen fire was a huge loss to Providence, we are turning it into an opportunity to continue our climb to become one of the leading Canadian Christ-centred universities,” says Dr. Johnson.

This fall, Johnson and the task force plan to tour some of North American’s most prominent residence facilities. After the tours and a comprehensive consultation process, the task force will make a series of recommendations. In addition, the task force is already working alongside a designer and architect on plans for a new.

Throughout September, campus groups have met with the designer and architect, the goal of which is to identity the key values and facilities that should be incorporated in the plans.
