As we rise to new heights in academic stature, attract more talented students and faculty, and perform more groundbreaking research, we must be certain our physical campus rises with us.

Our goal is to ensure an environment that inspires intellectual creativity and reflects our mission.  With a growing concern for sustainability, we will renovate existing university structures, build new ones, and develop new areas of campus.

A few highlights of current campus projects:

  • Commonwealth Honors College Residential Community
    A new residential learning community will be a symbol of the university's ability to attract the best and brightest and to provide them with a level of academic rigor to match the best public research institutions in the world.  The new facility will provide a living-learning environment where motivated students strive to excel, create peer relationships, and share interests, experiences, and a desire to learn.  Learn more.
  • The Business Innovation Wing - Isenberg School of Management
    Construction of the new wing will accomodate space for exciting new and expanded programs certain to have a major impact on the community of scholars.  A dramatic, three-story atrium will become the heart of the school with a study commons and 6,000 square feet of space for enrichment activities that encourage entrepreneurial enterprise.
  • Champions Center and McGuirk Stadium Improvements
    Serving as a centerpiece for athletics on campus, the Champions Center will include a premier training venue for men's and women's basketball, academic support commons, and a field house.  McGuirk improvements will include facility upgrades for the football support building and stadium press box.
  • Old Chapel
    Restoration of the Old Chapel as an emblem of the university's strong, vibrant past and bright, innovative future is crucial. The renewal of Old Chapel as a center of creative and intellectual activity will help not only to build on the university's momentum, but also to bring to life a campus symbol that will strengthen bonds among the UMass community for generations to come.
