photo of Bevier Hall

Bevier Hall is a residence hall within the Hasbrouck complex. The Hasbrouck complex is made up of suites, each having two to four student rooms, a common bath and a small lounge area. Students who live in the suites enjoy the privacy of their own "living room" and often personalize it (along with their individual rooms) with posters, plants, rugs and furniture. The residents are responsible for maintaining and cleaning their own bathroom. No furniture is provided by SUNY New Paltz for the suite area. Located in the basement of Bevier Hall are a laundry room with washers and dryers, a T.V. lounge, a recreation room, a recycling room, a computer lab, and cooking facilities. The first floor houses vending machines, public restrooms and a study lounge. Student involvement in programs and activities, as well as close proximity to the tennis courts, basketball court and the Hasbrouck Dining Hall and Computer Lab, make Bevier Hall attractive to its diverse co-educational population. Bevier is a building well known for its energy and comfortable atmosphere.

History: Bevier Hall is named for one of the original Huguenot families who settled in New Paltz in the 1670’s. Louis Bevier, a French Huguenot and New Paltz patentee, was active in the local military, Louis was appointed to Sergeant in Captain Matyson's Company of Foot in 1686 and later appointed Ensign in the Ulster County Militia under Captain Abraham Hasbrouck in 1698. At New Paltz, Louis helped to organize the French Church at New Paltz in 1683, where he later served as deacon and elder.
