Harvard Students Praise Renovations

A new light court replaces an under-utilized alleyway between the dining hall and new common spaces at McKinlock Hall.

At Harvard University, McKinlock Hall (part of Leverett House) reopened to the student community in August following significant renovations. The Harvard Crimson reports that the 165-bed residence hall, the second Harvard House to be renovated under the House renewal program, has been drawing praise from students for its modernized bedrooms and social spaces, including the lower-level spaces dubbed "the Rabbit Hole" (the house mascot is the rabbit). 
The renewal pilot project, Stone Hall (Quincy House), was completed in 2013.
