Final Chapter Residence Hall

I've spent a lot of time in this regional college town off and on since I moved down here to take my current job, but it took me until last month to notice that there are two enormous abandoned residence halls just off the main campus. Here is the larger of the two, which is slated to be demolished imminently and the property reused as a storm water overflow reservoir. As expected, the residential areas were pretty plain and uninteresting, with little leftovers and most of the windows blown out from police training. There were still some good detail shots to be had, though:

1.)


2.)


3.)


4.)


5.)


6.)


7.)


8.)


9.)


10.)


11.)


By far the most interesting area, though, which by itself was worth the price of admission, was the former dining hall:

12.)


13.)


14.)


15.)


16.)


17.)


As always, thanks for looking!

We must be careful about what we pretend to be.

Great shots. It's a cool looking spot even though boring. Interesting features.

Cool set, not alot of 'artifacts' left, but it looks like there's still quite a bit to see. Great work, I like school explores, though so far as an explorer, I haven't quite graduated to exploring a college...
Thanks for sharing!

Great set and location! I especially love the mailboxes in the earlier shots and the dining hall. I'm surprised by how well illuminated the building is, it seems so much brighter than many other abandoned buildings once the lights are turned off, I guess much of it must've been lit up by natural light even when it was still being used.

Cool set as usual. The dining hall looked really cool too. It's always nice to find those little hidden spots that you've been by a million times but never noticed. Have you done the other building yet?

I walked around it, but it's better fenced than this one and I couldn't find a good way to get too close. There's also still power, which probably means that the electronic door locks you usually find on dorm entrances are still engaged. So not yet, but unlike this one it isn't scheduled for demolition, so it may become accessible in the future.

And thanks for looking, everyone. I know I've been throwing up a lot of sets lately, but I've unexpectedly had good luck finding cool new places this spring, and I can't helping sharing them with you folks.
