Biological Sciences Initiative – Spaulding Hall Expansion and Renovation
This is the University System’s top priority for State capital funding. This $86M project has been approved by the USNH Board of Trustees in June 2018 with USNH and UNH committing $51M with the remaining $35M anticipated to come from the State over the next 2-3 biennia.
Spaulding Hall was originally constructed in 1960 with limited renovations in 1995. This project addresses a number of urgent science facility renovations and expansion to serve the growing number of students in biological and neuroscience programs. It addresses major building system failures in Spaulding Hall, as well as essential renovations for laboratory spaces that have outlived their useful life and do not comply with current teaching and research needs. It will include a combination of repurposing and relocating science lab occupants from Kendall Hall and Conant Hall. It will significantly expand teaching and research labs and all of the necessary support functions.
