Despite being constrained by a small, land-locked campus, Northwestern University has added nearly two million gross square feet to its north campus in the last 7 years. Major capital projects have focused on the convergence of academic, research, libraries, athletics, recreation, and support facilities in this compact area of campus. Touring select spaces in the Kellogg Global Hub, our professional business school, and Mudd Hall, a mixed-use research and library building, this session will provide an overview of recent north campus development.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Explain how to promote interdisciplinary collaboration by integrating multiple uses into campus facilities.
  2. Describe how to maximize the space within an existing building site.
  3. Identify the ways in which building projects can improve campus management and research capabilities.
  4. Explain how you can achieve physical growth on your campus while also preserving valuable land for communal green space and future development.
