Choate Rosemary Hall St. John Campus Center

Wallingford, CT

The St. John Hall Student Center at Choate Rosemary Hall is a new 49,000 square-foot, three-story building that consolidates several important functions that serve students, which are currently located in various buildings on the school’s 400-acre campus. Choate is an independent, co-educational boarding and day school for 860 students in grades 9-12. St. John Hall serves as the hub of student life on campus. The building incorporates 21st Century Learning principals, bringing day students and boarders together in spaces that promote social interaction, collaborative work, and relaxation activities. Having the Deans’ offices in a discrete zone within the building promotes mentoring and counseling within the context of a more informal atmosphere. The LEED Gold facility houses social/gathering and study spaces for all students, locker space for day students, Deans’ offices, spaces for clubs and school publications, a School Store, and a Café. The building is joined to historic Hill House, where 5,000 sf on two-stories have been renovated to provide a suite for the college counseling office.
