Each generation of Gusties has experienced the transformation of campus. The Hill is a work in progress, always changing in response to student needs, current professional standards, and plans for the future. Following a long-term, sensible plan for campus development, the next projects will bring needed updates to decades-old buildings.

Nobel Hall of Science
Status: Final Stages
Nobel Hall of ScienceNow nearing completion, the expansion and renovation of Nobel Hall has nearly doubled the building’s size, better accommodating the growth of student interest in the natural sciences. The project’s first phase, construction of the Nobel Hall Expansion, was finished by fall 2019. Phase two, renovation of the existing Nobel Hall, will be completed during the 2019–20 academic year.
Lund Center
Status: Planning
Lund Center ExpansionWhen it opened in 1984, Lund Center was the class of the MIAC and one of the best athletic facilities in all of Division III. Today, the building has reached its limits as a functional and safe space. The planned renovation and expansion of Lund Center will create an efficient and adaptable facility. More than an athletic facility, it will be a wellness and academic center for the entire Gustavus community and a top-class space for welcoming prospective students, visiting teams, and summer campers.

Status: On the Horizon
