When is the Student Center renovation scheduled to start and end?
Everything kicks off summer 2019, with a tentative completion 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. A map detailing recommended parking in the meantime will be coming soon.
Will I still be able to have access to the help (advising, financial aid, career services, etc.) I need?
The services you depend on in Iowa Hall will still be available. They will be housed in temporary locations, but you can learn more about temporary spaces on this website soon.
Who should I contact if I have questions?
