Ruthven renovation will bring sustainable design to historic building
The Board of Regents approved design plans Thursday for a new 100,000-square-foot classroom building on Central Campus that will serve up to 10,000 students each day.
The construction is part of a project that also would renovate the historic Alexander G. Ruthven Museums Building. The new facility — to be called the Central Campus Classroom Building — will replace a 34,000-square-foot addition built onto the Ruthven building in 1964.
The classroom building will include 1,400 classroom seats in a variety of learning spaces, including a 550-seat auditorium, a 200-seat classroom “in the round” and other team-based learning rooms.
