AULA has begun the exciting process of expanding its campus from 51,318 square feet to 62,252 square feet – an increase of more than 25%. Once the renovation is complete, AULA’s campus will boast larger, more comfortable classrooms, with new furniture and finishes that were chosen for their environmental sustainability, durability, and flexibility to facilitate collaborative learning.
The fourth floor will be expanded to house the AULA library, computer lab, Antioch University Counseling Center, and more administrative and program offices. There will be new offices to accommodate adjunct faculty members.
The renovation is broken down into two phases.
Phase One will take place December 11, 2013 through January 31, 2014. It will include the expansion and redesign of fourth floor and expansion, additions, and enhancements to the first floor classrooms.
Phase Two will occur February 3, 2014 through March 28, 2014. It will include the redesign of the second floor offices, expansion of student lounge, main building and annex classrooms.
The renovation schedule has been designed to be as unobtrusive as possible on AULA’s day-to-day operations, but there may be some minor inconveniences along the way. Some classes may need to be relocated during the winter term so that renovation may occur in those rooms.
