Extreme Makeover: Frazier Hall
Frazier Hall, a residence facility for freshmen women is undergoing a full transformation. All bathrooms and dormitory rooms in the historical hall, built in 1929, will be upgraded with new casework, closets, and wider doorways for full compliance with the American Disabilities Act. Marshall Moya is serving as both the architect and designer of the interiors for Frazier’s renovation.
The building is named after Julia S. Caldwell-Frazier, a Howard graduate who led a distinguished career as a teacher and civic leader. Mrs. Caldwell-Frazier received an Honorary Degree of the Master of the Arts from the University in 1925, and in 1933 the board voted to name of one of the new women’s dormitories in her honor.
All hallways and rooms of Frazier will be painted, and new ceilings will be installed. The bathrooms will feature new fixtures and tile. New interior lighting and light fixtures will be additional upgrades. The facelift at Frazier also includes many upgrades that you can’t see such as a new roof, HVAC system, an electrical utility upgrade and a new fire suppression system.
