The University is embarking on the second, and final, phase of renovating Father O’Connell Hall. Beginning this month (October), the building will be closed for construction. It is expected to reopen for business in late summer/early fall 2014. During the second phase, Father O’Connell Hall will undergo full exterior and interior restoration and renovation. When it reopens as a state-of-the art facility its primary function will be to provide prospective, current, and former students (i.e., alumni) a convenient centralized location where they can transact all their University business.
The anticipated reopening of Father O’Connell Hall will coincide roughly with the conclusion of the first major part of the Monroe Street Market development project that will feature three new mixed-use buildings along Michigan Avenue directly across the street from O’Connell Hall. The reopening will also come during the 100th anniversary of O’Connell Hall’s original construction in 2014. It will be a fitting way to celebrate one of the most iconic buildings on campus.
