NDSU – Minard Hall
Minard Hall is NDSU’s primary classroom building. The building houses the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences and 115 faculty offices. It also contains 10 classrooms and 14 departmental seminar rooms.
The Minard Hall Addition was designed as “University space,” intended for use by any department requiring additional classroom or lecture space on campus. A link between the Music Education Building, built in 1985, and Minard Hall, it serves as a gathering space for students with a new coffee service area and the inviting second floor mezzanine overlooking the first floor commons area. Completed in 2003, an addition to historic Minard Hall (Phase I) at NDSU included 27,000 SF state-of-the-art learning center with lecture halls and PBL (Problem Based Learning) environments and AV and IT interaction between faculty and students.
Phase II, includes a $9.9 million renovation of the 78,000 GSF building and awaits funding by the ND Legislature. Phasing of the project will be essential as “swing space” is marginal, requiring partial occupancy of the four-story historic building throughout the construction process.
