The board of trustees of Meredith College has approved the construction of a new academic building on the College’s Hillsborough St. campus in Raleigh.
The new academic facility will be constructed near the Weatherspoon Gymnasium/Lowery Fitness Center, located on the northwestern side of the college’s 225-acre campus.
The new building will replace Weatherspoon Annex, providing new instructional space for Meredith’s growing communication and exercise and sports science programs.
The construction project will also free up space in Harris Building, allowing Meredith’s new hospitality management program to be housed with the School of Business. The hospitality management program will begin accepting students in Fall 2019.
Construction is expected to be completed prior to the start of the Fall 2020 semester.
