The official ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Irvington House Residence Hall on Butler University’s campus was Thursday, September 13th. Shiel Sexton worked with American Campus Communities on the Student Housing Master Plan for phase two of this project.

Located in the middle of campus, the Irvington House is a convenient, 647-bed facility that boasts modern amenities such as a fitness center, technology lab, study lounges, recreation area, large multipurpose meeting room, and outdoor courtyards. The project design is a suite-style residence hall geared toward freshmen and sophomore students.

Previously, Schwitzer Residence Hall occupied the site since 1956, and was demolished in the fall of 2016 to make room for Irvington House. All furniture, hardware, and equipment were donated before demolition, and exterior materials such as brick and concrete were recycled back into the new structure. The $29.7 million residence hall filled up quickly for the new semester and will be enjoyed by many students, faculty, and alumni living on or visiting the Butler Campus. 

Shiel Sexton is proud to help deliver Butler’s latest two residence options for students including Fairview House that debuted in August 2016, and now Irvington House.
