Renovations Are On Track for Morton Hall
Renovations are on track to open Dartmouth’s Morton Hall this fall. The undergraduate student residence was closed after receiving substantial damage during an Oct. 1, 2016 fire. The renovations will increase in the number of beds from 67 to 84, add an elevator, and configure a central common area on all four floors of the building.
The four-alarm fire struck in the early morning hours and smoke and water damage left Morton Hall uninhabitable. No one was injured in the blaze and residents were relocated to temporary housing spaces around campus. Fire officials determined the fire was caused by students using a hibachi on a flat section of roof. Sebastian Lim and Daniel Ro the two students who used the hibachi and left it unattended were expelled from the college for a threat to the community at large.
