Capital Project Management is always working on adding to and improving our campus. All throughout the year there are major projects starting, in progress, or finishing up. In addition, many projects are literally "on the drawing board" or just waiting for the final approval.
Students entering the university today see a campus that is adding and/or renovating buildings and structures all across campus. From the New Academic Building (NAB) to the new Netherlands Unispan, the campus has some high profile changes. Add to this the constant renovations all across campus and you have a dynamic environment that is changing to continue to meet the needs of our students.
New Graduate Residence Hall
The Graduate Residence Hall will be a new 5-story, residential facility located on the North Campus of Hofstra University, between Constitution and Alliance Halls. The building will provide accommodations for 225 graduate students in the form of 58 furnished residential units. In addition to the residential units, each floor will have two study rooms, along with laundry and recycling spaces. The primary common spaces will be lounge and meeting areas located on the Ground Floor.
Energy efficient through-wall PTAC units will provide both air conditioning and heating to the residential suites, while supplemental systems located on the roof will handle the heating and cooling requirements for the public and common spaces. In addition, the new building will be fully sprinklered and equipped with the latest life safety system, and it’s will have its own emergency generator and fire pump.
David S. Mack University Hall Renovation
Whether it is academic, living, meeting or athletic space, Hofstra University continually works to ensure that the space is utilized to its fullest. As a center for meetings and events, the University Club is a key piece of Hofstra University. To ensure that the University Club maintains its position as a hub of activity, a major renovation to the building is being done. The David S. Mack University Hall is expected to open in October 2007.
