NMU is continually evaluating the physical needs of the campus. Through this review process, current facilities are chosen for maintenance or renovation while new facilities are considered for construction. Renovating old buildings and constructing new facilities is an involved process that requires the university to take several steps. Some of these steps include finding appropriate funding, developing a design plan and project timeline, selecting industry partners to work on the project and, finally, working on the building. These pages outline some of the projects that NMU currently has in the design phase.
