Substantial completion of the nation’s preeminent educational center for wounded veterans highlights the more than 40 capital improvement projects taking place on the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus this summer. The Chez Family Foundation Center for Wounded Veterans in Higher Education will be a state-of-the-art facility combining 24-hour comprehensive support with academic programming for student veterans and their families. 

A complete map of project locations and descriptions are available at:

Summer projects will provide accessibility improvements, laboratory remodels, updated facility infrastructure and building envelopes, enhanced energy efficiency, life safety features, and beautification of the campus grounds. Notable projects include Ikenberry Commons #3 Residence Hall, State Farm Center, and the Natural History Building.

The renovation of the Chemistry Annex is part of the Instructional Space Improvement (ISI) initiative funded by the Office of the Provost, colleges and departments, the Academic Facilities Maintenance Fund Assessment (AFMFA), and library and information technology fee. To date, approximately 113 classrooms have been upgraded through the ISI.

As much as practical, work on these major capital construction projects is timed for this period to minimize potential inconvenience to students, faculty, and staff. Several transportation network and utilities infrastructure improvements will necessitate street closures.

Facilities & Services appreciates your patience as these projects transform the campus environment and modernize learning spaces.
