The Colorado School of Mines Facilities Master Plan defines the university’s physical needs associated with its strategic direction. It is a comprehensive and dynamic plan that provides the framework necessary to guide campus physical development.
The plan, originally developed in 2004 and reshaped in 2010, allows the campus to improve aesthetics, meet required space needs, plan for facility upgrades and improve site conditions.
Recently, Mines completed construction on an expansion of Brown Hall, which houses the engineering and mining engineering departments; Maple Hall, the first new residence hall on campus since 1978; Marquez Hall, home of the Petroleum Engineering Department; and the W. Lloyd Wright Student Wellness Center.
Some exciting projects in design include:
- Elm Street Residence and Dining Hall: A 200-bed residence hall planned on the site between Maple Street and Elm Street and 18th. The 500-seat dining hall will be directly off Maple Street.
- Alumni Hall: A new home for the Alumni Association and the Foundation. It is planned to be west of Public Safety and east of Weaver Towers.
Other recent projects include:
- Aspen Hall: A residence hall receiving an interior renovation to house additional students.
- Center for Academic Services and Advising (CASA): The old Coulter Health Center was renovated to provide offices and 24-hour study and tutor areas for one of the newest departments on campus.
