Millikin University breaks ground on new University Commons
Friday, November 6, 2015
Millikin University broke ground on the Hastings+Chivetta-designed University Commons. Once completed, the 87,000 SF facility will become the new front door to the campus, re-energizing the university’s learning and living spaces.
The building will blend the existing 1976 Staley Library with a large addition to the south side of the building. Elements of the renovated library will be incorporated into the more efficient, forward-thinking design of the Commons.
The Commons will be a home base and living room for all students at Millikin, and will support library functions as well as research and innovation programs on campus.
The building will be complete in time for the start of the 2017 school year.
