Renovations at Kirkwood

Your guide for navigating campus changes and how they’ll impact your day-to-day activities at Kirkwood.




When is the Student Center renovation scheduled to end?
Tentative completion is scheduled in fall 2022.

Will this construction impact the cost of my tuition?
No, your tuition cost will not change as a result of the renovations. In 2017, voters passed a $60 million bond issue that covers the cost.

What will the new Student Center be like?
The new Student Center will be the main hub of campus! It’s a place designed for you - Kirkwood students - to hang out, study, meet up with your student club or organization, or get the help you need from your academic advisor or career coach. There are so many exciting features to this new building - we can’t wait to tell you more.

Will the location of my classes be impacted?
Potentially, but you’ll be notified in advance, so you can plan ahead.

How will parking be impacted?
As the renovation progresses, parking to the south of Iowa Hall will be reduced. See maps above.

Will I still be able to have access to the help (advising, financial aid, career services, etc.) I need?
The services previously found in Iowa Hall will still be available. They will be housed in the temporary locations noted above.
