Recent Visser Hall Renovations

In 2020 through 2021, renovations to Visser Hall Rm 330, where many classes, meetings, and special events have occurred underwent a complete renovation.

During Summer 2020, a new entrance was added, leading visitors from the sidewalk in front to the Visser Hall patio.

Summer 2018 saw renovations to facilities within Visser Hall, including most of the second floor and the addition of 24/7 learning commons off of Skillett Atrium.

In Spring 2018, inside the main entrance, display cases and walls were removed for the Kansas Masonic Literacy Center to create space for its expanding services.

The work continued during Summer 2019, when new flooring, paint, and windows were put in place to update the needs of students and update the interior finishes.

Recent HPER Building Renovations

In 2016, the top floor of the HPER was remodeled to allow for learning commons space for students - to work individually or in groups - and classrooms were upgraded to integrate technology.
