In 2009, BGSU announced plans to construct a new residence hall, "South Central Hall," located on the site of Rodgers Quadrangle. Students had the opportunity to select their preferences from a list of ten proposed names, and they chose Centennial Hall, marking the 100th Anniversary of BGSU.  

The new facility was designed to house 664 beds, including both single and double rooms, and has freshmen residents as its focus.  It features in-unit climate control and high-speed wireless internet.  First floor amenity areas include flexible programming space, high-tech group study and workgroup spaces.

Listed below are additional highlights in the history of the building:
