FLEMING, HARVEY Renovation Updates

Chancellor Sorensen cuts the ribbon at the grand opening in April. The building originally opened in 1985.
A $6.6 million renovation project is under way on Fleming Hall. The north campus residence hall, which opened in 1962, was closed for the spring semester and will reopen for the fall semester.

Students will have new bathrooms, carpet and furnishings. The building also will have new windows, heating, electrical, plumbing, network wiring and fire alarm and fire suppression systems.

In 2010, Fleming Hall was connected to Hovlid Hall via a new shared entryway. That project included the renovation of Hovlid Hall and construction of North Point Dining and Fitness Center.

Meanwhile, the Wisconsin State Building Commission in October approved spending money to prepare the design documents to renovate Harvey Hall, built in 1916. The project has an estimated cost of nearly $30 million.

Harvey Hall, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is one of the most heavily used academic and office buildings on campus.

The timetable for the project has not been set. It is the second part of an overall plan that started with a $5.1 million renovation of Harvey Hall Theatre.

Dramatic new entryways greet visitors to the student center.
