Gilman Demolition / Dana Renovation

About the Project

In late 2017 the College is undertaking a capital project – to demolish Gilman Hall and renovate Dana Hall – that will provide much-needed faculty office space and greatly enhance the connection to the north end of campus. Gilman Hall, formerly the biological sciences building, is in poor condition and has been vacant since the completion of the Class of 1978 Life Sciences Center in 2010. This project will be razed in late November – December, 2017.

Dana, former home of the biomedical library, is in much better structural condition, and will be renovated to house faculty offices, a graduate student lounge and reading/study space for students. Once this renovation is complete, landscape improvements on both building sites will provide pedestrian walkways, green space, and parking.

The Dana renovation will be in design through spring, 2018. Once details about the building interior are finalized and approved, they will be shared on this website.
