University Accelerates Construction
In response to Seton Hall's record enrollment increase in 2012, and in anticipation of continued growth, President Gabriel Esteban recently announced that the University is accelerating the pace of three important capital improvements. The development represents a modification of priorities laid out in the University's Campus Master Plan.
Planning has begun for the expansion of Seton Hall's five-level parking deck; the addition of a fourth floor on Aquinas Hall along with other improvements to this residence hall; and the construction of a new, three-story building dedicated to classroom space. Along with the renovation currently underway at the Regan Recreation and Athletic Center, these projects are part of the University's master plan for capital improvements of the South Orange campus. At the same time, planning continues on the construction of a new University Center, now scheduled to begin in 2016.
Expansion of classrooms facilities at Seton Hall will be funded, in part, by the New Jersey higher education bond act passed by voters in November. The grant will be used to defray the cost of the new building which will replace Stafford Hall.
"We are certainly proud of our beautiful campus and pleased to be moving forward on projects that will enhance the experiences we share at Seton Hall," President Esteban commented. "All around us are signs of renewal and growth—signs that carry great promise for the future of our university and community."
