Husson Townhouses Exterior

Husson University’s decision to build the new Townhouse Residences was driven by the need to ease the shortage of on-campus student housing due to increased enrollment in 2016. The three-building complex was designed with the intent to provide housing for upperclassmen and to attract those students living off campus, to return to the Husson campus.

Husson University, Bangor, Maine

Carlisle Restrooms

Carlisle Hall is one of three original dormitories constructed when the Husson campus moved from downtown Bangor to the site of the former Hillman Dairy Farm in the 1960’s. The identical residence halls served the University for many years, and despite the numerous past renovations, the restrooms remained much the same as when built. The University decided to initiate a plan to renovate the restrooms in the three buildings over a three-year period.
