Merrill Place Conference Center & Residences Welcome First Students
PSU’s continued move toward full implementation of the integrated clusters and open labs model took a leap forward as the first students moved into the Merrill Place Conference Center & Residences on August 30, 2017.
The seven-story, 95,000 square foot building allows PSU to further integrate our academic cluster model into the living-learning experience for students. Offering 288 beds, Merrill Place offers students a state-of-the-art place to not just live but to experience the clusters model of learning outside the traditional classroom.
In addition to being the premier residence hall on campus, Merrill Place also serves as the centerpiece to PSU’s growing conference and events department. With full-service conference facilities and on-site hotel-style housing, Merrill Place will assist Plymouth State in growing our summer conference business and have a direct, positive impact on the regional tourism and economic development.
The official ribbon-cutting for the new facility will take place at the start of Homecoming Weekend 2017 on Friday September 24 @ 4:30 pm.
