Ohio University Jefferson Hall


Ohio University


Athens, Ohio




Jefferson Hall is being renovated to enhance the quality of the residential experience. The goal is to modernize all interior elements while respecting and maintaining the historic Georgian character. The project is designed for LEED Silver certification. The upper floors will be infused with natural light with spaces tailored for student life.

The first floor, which opened in January 2017, is a modern and vibrant culinary experience with a Cafe and Marketplace designed to serve students and faculty. In addition to a deli, juice bar, coffee shop and market, they also have a Culinary Studio with live cooking demos, classes about special dietary needs, visits from guests chefs, and cooking classes for kids. Their mission is to be “an educational food experience.” Ohio University’s newsletter, Compass, has a great story featuring the recent opening of the New Jefferson Marketplace.
