UND’s historic campus has gone under many renovations since its founding in 1883. Today, the campus has seen major building projects in the last couple years. The newly named Nistler College of Business & Professional Disciplines opened its doors in the Fall 2022 semester. This brand new 108,000 sq. ft. building boasts 28 classrooms and labs, 10 group study rooms, a 5,000 sq. ft. auditorium with the ability to accommodate 250 students, skywalks connecting to the Chester Fritz Library and Merrifield Hall, and 8,750 sq. ft. of flexible space with the ability to accommodate 350+ students, faculty, and community members. This space will be configurable for campus tours, business competitions, and campus or community events. The new business school is located just East of Gamble Hall.
Other new additions to the campus are the reconstructions of McVey and West Hall dormitories. McVey and West Hall were both demolished with two brand new structures built to replace them. McVey opened its doors in the Fall of 2022 and West Hall will open up Fall of 2023. Bek and Hancock Hall were demolished and Walsh and Squires Hall are slated to be as well.
Merrifield Hall celebrated its 93rd birthday this year. At homecoming, an open house was put on to highlight the building and to announce a remodeling project. More details are to come, but this project will start in the Spring 2023 semester.
