New Academic Building and Auditorium
Holder Construction Company began construction of the new facility in late January 2020. The Learning Commons is scheduled to open in July 2022. The Masters of Education program will inaugurate the facility with its summer class. The Performing Arts Building will open for classes in August 2022.
A new precinct for the Campus will be located on the site of the current varsity athletic field. It will feature a 700-seat auditorium, 125-seat recital hall and adjacent rehearsal studios, classrooms and offices for the Music department. Facing it, across a new north campus courtyard and adjacent to Goodpaster Hall is a second building which will house the Educational Studies department and its Masters of Teaching program, a 24-hour Study Commons for student collaboration and study, and a Cafe serving coffee, other beverages and light snacks. A new Crescent Greens behind the Townhouse Crescent for outdoor relaxation and recreation is to be created as is increased parking on the north campus and improvements to the College’s entry from Mattapany Road.
The project will address deficiencies in laboratory space for the STEM program by relocating the Educational Studies department from Goodpaster Hall to the new building and providing both programs with adequate space. It will also address inadequate facilities for the fine and performing arts in Montgomery Hall by relocating the Music department, providing state-of-the-art music education facilities and practice spaces in the new building and permitting the future renovation of Montgomery Hall to suit the requirements of the Art and Theater, Film and Media Studies programs. It will provide study space for collaborative learning experiences for students and faculty. And the project will provide the College with a venue for concerts, lectures, and other events in a 700-seat auditorium.
The building will be sited to provide a connection between the existing academic core and the Waring Commons residences, and create a lawn and garden space behind the existing Crescent townhouses.
