POTSDAM -- More than $800,000 in dormitory upgrades have been completed at SUNY Potsdam.

Bathrooms were upgraded in Lehman Hall with new plumbing fixtures, electrical, tile throughout and shower stalls.

The projects were financed through the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY) SUNY Dormitory Facilities Program, which issues low-cost, tax-exempt bonds supported by student residence hall fees.

“Delivering projects with speed and efficiency is DASNY’s calling card and we are proud to have completed these upgrades at SUNY Potsdam on a tight schedule,” DASNY President & CEO Gerrard P. Bushell said in a prepared statement. “Students returning this fall will find modern, supportive living environments that will help them develop into the next generation of leaders, making this work central to the growth of New York’s economy.”

“I am grateful to the DASNY team for working seamlessly with SUNY Potsdam to upgrade our residence halls. Ensuring that our students have a safe and comfortable living environment is a top priority for the campus. Projects like these allow our students to feel that Potsdam is their home away from home, which further improves their ability to focus on their academics. Ultimately, the $800,000 in upgrades is an investment in our students and their futures,” SUNY Potsdam President Kristin Esterberg said in a prepared statement.
