First-year Village


The recently completed Pagliaro Selz Hall will be joined by two other first-year residence halls, creating a “village” for 450 first-year students to live, work, and socialize. First-year students will live close to the center of campus, directly adjacent to the Decker Sports and Recreation Center and a new centralized dining facility in the Pearlstone Student Center. The village is designed for interaction, with prominent communal areas for students to come together to cook, share, and learn. The new village will help recruit students to Goucher, as well as prepare them for success when they arrive on campus.
