Payson Library Remodel and Renovation

Project Description

This project will update and replace aging infrastructure and modernize the physical spaces of the Payson Library, Pendleton Learning Center, and Huntsinger Academic Center. The interior remodel will transform the library into a more open and collaborative environment and reinvigorate the surrounding spaces for academic use.

During the renovations, Payson Library will have off-site book storage and a hub on campus for library resources, where you can request off-site books for retrieval. Library administration will be located on campus, and we are working on designated study spaces on campus as well.


May 2016 – August 2017
