Students Choose "Dragon Hall"

If you’ve been wondering what to call the new, 220-bed building rising at the corner of Neubig Road and Broadway Avenue, you can stop searching for adjectives.

The state-of-the art, environmentally friendly residence hall will be officially, though temporarily, known as Dragon Hall.

That’s the most-liked suggestion of an online contest run by the Residence Life and Housing Office, which announced the selection today.

“Dragon Hall” will be used to identify the structure until a naming gift gives the building a permanent identity.

SUNY Cortland operates under the first facilities naming program approved by the SUNY Board of Trustees. The program, launched in conjunction with the College’s “Educating Champions” $25 million capital campaign, ties campus naming opportunities to specific gift levels. More information is available on the SUNY Cortland website.

Dragon Hall is expected to open for the fall semester.
