Nobel Hall Expansion and Renovation

Physical Plant / Facilities Management

Gustavus Adolphus College will begin the expansion and renovation of the iconic Nobel Hall of Science in early February. When the project is completed in 2020, Gustavus science facilities will rival those of the top liberal arts colleges in the nation.

The $70 million project, which will nearly double the building’s footprint to 177,300 square feet and completely renovate the existing facilities, received final approval from the Gustavus Board of Trustees on Friday, January 26. Nobel Hall houses the departments of biology, chemistry, geography, and geology along with interdisciplinary programs in biochemistry/molecular biology and environmental studies.
