The development of the Central District into a new hub of research and education on the campus of the University of Kansas addresses immediate needs and positions KU to address the challenges of the future. This project will not only transform our physical space, but will fundamentally change the way research and education is done at KU.
Through a public-private partnership with Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate, projects like a new Integrated Science Building will replace aging facilities and will help serve STEM fields that are seeing increased enrollments. A new residence hall and student apartment building will add more space to accommodate five straight years of freshman class growth. And a new student union will provide conference and office space for students and a variety of university functions.
The university as a whole will see the benefits from this work for decades to come.
