Did You Live in Chaudoin? 

Chaudoin Hall in 2020

Built in 1892, Chaudoin Hall still cuts a striking figure across from the Carlton Union Building. With a north wing added in 1894 and the south wing in 1935, Chaudoin was designed in Colonial Revival style with multiple dormers, gambrel roof and ornate windows. 

It has served as home to thousands of Stetson women over the past 130 years, but this year the hall is closed for renovation, with planned completion in time for August 2023’s move-in.

“Our goal is to increase community space, accessibility and other updates that are attractive to today’s students while keeping Chaudoin’s historic charm,” said Larry Correll-Hughes, PhD, co-interim vice president and assistant vice president for campus life and student success.

Planned renovations include: 

  • Reconfiguration of rooms on the Main and North wings to have suite and private bathrooms like the South wing 
  • Addition of an elevator and increased ADA accessible entrances, rooms and spaces
  • Addition of laundry, kitchen and community lounge and study rooms (second and third floors)
  • Relocation of kitchen (open concept) and additional community space (first floor)
  • Installation of a new heating, ventilation and air conditioning system
  • Addition of fire-suppression sprinklers
  • Upgrading of finishes throughout, including doors and windows
