For the first time in 45 years, Heidelberg students got new “digs” to call home with the new Talmage Hall. The facility is a 120-student residence hall and a 9,000 sq. ft. student commons area for all students, faculty, and visitors alike to enjoy.
Primarily housing sophomores, the hall includes five two-story, 24-student “pods”, each with 12 students per floor in bedrooms surrounding an open, two-story living/gathering space. The living space includes a balcony, loft seating, kitchen, soft seating, and study spaces to reinforce the academic mission. An important part of the project is the student commons area, which features a cafe pub, great room, study spaces, meeting, and conference rooms, along with a patio for outdoor dining and social gatherings.
