Over 30 Construction Projects Underway on Ole Miss Campus

The University of Mississippi is rapidly growing campus-wide as the construction workers continue to tear down the old buildings to pave way for a brighter future.

According to the Ole Miss Newsdesk, there are 33 major construction projects. Below are some ongoing or upcoming 2016 projects for the Ole Miss alumni to anticipate.

Vaught-Hemingway Stadium – North End zone
This project is easily one of the most exciting, and the beloved stadium will look brand new by this football season! Check out this video of how the stadium will look bowled out.

Student Union

This $50 million project began last May right after the Class of 2015 graduation ceremonies. The renovation has three more years left to go before it’s a nearly unrecognizable building to the Ole Miss alumni.

By 2018, the Union will have a larger dining area, new student government offices, an 8,000 square feet ballroom and more as the building upgrades from 97,000 square feet to around 173,000 square feet. The food court will remain open amid construction.

STEM Building and Ford Way

Last September, the Gertrude C. Ford Foundation expanded its $20 million donation to $25 million to support the university’s new Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) building.

The construction is scheduled to begin this spring and the new STEM facility may open fall 2018. In preparation, the university demolished the Old Physical Plant where William Faulkner wrote As I Lay Dying.

The Chucky Mullins Road will undergo construction May 2016 for a new roundabout to alleviate traffic congestion. The construction is slated to be completed by August 2016, just in time for the students’ arrival.
