Located on the campus of Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ, the North Halls include three (3) individual dormitories, Chestnut, Magnolia, and Willow Halls. Constructed in 1983 the buildings collectively house over 700 students. Almost since the buildings completion the University had experienced water infiltration into the partial Basements at all three (3) buildings.
