Nicholson Hall

Nicholson Hall is a 110-year-old, 88,000 sf building located in the Historic Knoll District of the University of Minnesota campus. Portions of the building were demolished, and the remainder underwent complete renovation, including reconstruction of the foundation and floor structure, replacement of the roof and windows, replacement of mechanical and electrical systems, and reconfiguration of the building’s interior.

Also of great importance was the assessment and restoration of the building exterior. The renovated facility was programmed to provide space for two academic units of the College of Liberal Arts, technology rich classrooms, office space, a writing center, advising services, and student study space.
