Berkeley College Celebrates Opening of 35,000-SF Renaissance Hall

Berkeley College, along with school administrators, students and state and Woodland Park officials, recently celebrated the official opening of Renaissance Hall with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The $9-million, 35,000-square-foot facility serves as a hub for student services and features a modern atrium as its focal point, comprising three stories of glass. The building is fully wireless for technology and comprises six classrooms; exterior and interior student and community gathering spaces; a dining facility; the Office of Military and Veterans Affairs; Student Development and Campus Life offices; the campus bookstore; the Academic Support Center; the Walter A. Brower Library; work space for the School of Liberal Arts faculty; a fitness room; the Admissions Welcome Center; meeting and conference rooms; and a community room.

“Renaissance Hall is more than an impressive building,” said Berkeley College President Dario A. Cortes during the ceremony. “The underpinnings of this beautiful facility are reinforced by the pillars of excellence and achievement in teaching and learning, career development and community service that will continue to drive the legacy of Berkeley College into the future.”

Berkeley College serves more than 8,000 students – including more than 900 international students ­–  at nine locations in New Jersey and New York. Additionally, the college has a global population through its online college, with 2,400 students taking online courses from 27 states.

“The mission of Berkeley College – to empower students to achieve lifelong success in dynamic careers – is rooted in our 83-year legacy as a learning institution that provides students a portal to opportunity,” Cortes said. “Berkeley College is proud to invest in New Jersey’s future as we grow in the Garden State.”
