    Boston University’s Campus Undergoes Capital Improvements

    Boston University has been making capital improvements across its campus, resulting in renovations and new facilities for students to utilize. One notable improvement is the renovated study space on the ninth floor of Kilachand Hall, which now features designated study areas and clean windows for an improved view of the city. Other updates include a new stair and elevator infrastructure, improved student rooms, and a unique design for the ninth floor.

    Over the summer, the Campus Planning & Operations team oversaw numerous construction projects on both the Charles River and Medical Campuses. These projects, which cost an estimated $70.2 million, included lobby refreshes, dining hall expansions, and façade and roof renovations. The team also worked on planning for BU’s next 10-year institutional master plan.

    Among the other capital improvement projects completed or underway is the renovation of Wheelock College of Education & Human Development’s lobby, the safety repairs on the facade of the School of Social Work and Economics buildings, and the renovations to classrooms and dining spaces at the Questrom School of Business. Sargent College of Health & Rehabilitation Sciences also underwent significant renovations, including a new lobby and upgraded classrooms. Additionally, the campus will soon have a new Robotics and Autonomous Systems Teaching and Innovation Center, as well as a dedicated LGBTQIA+ Student Resource Center.

    These capital improvements demonstrate Boston University’s commitment to enhancing the student experience and providing a welcoming and functional campus environment.
