New Hall B

New Hall B exterior

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.

New Hall B, Interior

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.

Softball Field

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.

In answer to many requests from students, Post Hall was renovated and now includes an "all you care to eat" dining facility.

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.

Revamping Parking Field 7
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.


Ruth S. Harley University Center
Pointing and Window at the Ruth S. Harley University Center

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.
