New Hall B
Adelphi's recently completed residence hall
opened for the fall 2011 semester. New Hall
B is the second residence hall, and fifth
building on campus, to be fully heated and
cooled by a geothermal system. There are 70
new geothermal wells for this residence hall;
each well is 330 feet deep, and they are all
located under the new softball field. This
system is a closed-loop system which cannot
contaminate the local ground water aquifer.
Each residence hall room has its own
heating/cooling pump, allowing each occupant to
regulate his/her own room temperature. The
installation and use of this system shows
Adelphi's continuing effort to reduce its carbon
footprint as well as setting an example for
others to follow. High-efficient lighting has
been installed throughout the building and all
plumbing fixtures are water saving devices.
The new residence hall is a four-story building
that has 66 individual rooms, which will house
a total of 171 residents in a combination of
single, double and triple rooms. All rooms
have their own private baths. Data, Internet
access and WiFi are available throughout the
building. New Hall B has also been
constructed according to the latest fire and safety codes.
Each room is equipped with sprinklers, smoke detectors, fire alarms, and carbon monoxide
detectors. All rooms have swipe card access for personal safety.

After the installation of the geothermal field for New Hall B beneath the previous softball field, the
timing was perfect to update the field with artificial turf field, bleachers, storage, dugouts, fencing,
press box and bathrooms. The new softball field was completed in time for use during
the summer of 2011.
Post Hall Café and C-Store
In answer to many requests from students, Post Hall was renovated and now includes an "all you
care to eat" dining facility. The renovation of the Post Hall dining area and the C-Store were completed
in time for the beginning of the Fall 2011 semester. The tables in the dining area provide a variety
of comfortable alternatives and include booths, and the renovation has provided a restaurant-style
eating experience. For one price, students, faculty and staff are now able to choose unlimited
quantities from a variety of healthy foods. The renovation included an upgrade of the heating and
lighting to energy efficient systems.
Alumnae Hall Nursing Lab
The newly renovated nursing lab in Alumnae Hall was completed in time for the Fall 2011 semester. The lab now contains audio-visual equipment and will also contain beds and other apparatus necessary for the nursing curriculum.
Revamping Parking Field 7 With Light Emitting Diodes(LED Lighting
Parking Field 7, which encompasses the area from behind Chapman Hall to the area behind the
new residence halls, was in a state of disrepair. That
entire lot was repaved and the lighting was upgraded.
The new lighting consists of uniform light across the lot
which provides additional security. Arrangements with
Public Safety have been made to add cameras to select
poles. The LED fixtures are 45% more efficient than the
fluorescent lighting and with a color temperature of 4000
Kelvin, the effect is closer to a daylight appearance.
Pointing and Window at the Ruth S. Harley University Center
The brick façade of the Ruth S. Harley University
Center experienced mortar and brick failure, due to
extreme weather and temperature changes over
the years. The areas affected most severely were
repointed and the window was replaced, which
has given the building a new look and has prevented leaks
and further damage.
Woodruff Hall is one of the original buildings on campus and the brick façade was in need of repair.
Over the summer, the building was repointed, waterproofed, and planters were

Adelphi University has recently made arrangements to acquire a Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer (NMR) to be located in the Department of Chemistry in the Science Building. The NMR is used to study the structure and interaction of molecules, underlying forces of molecules, and the analysis of the composition of solutions. This equipment is essential to the Department of Chemistry in order to attain certification from the American Chemical Society and to enhance research opportunities. The installation of the NMR will require
extensive renovations and modifications to the science lab where it will be located.
