University of Dayton Plans Campus Expansion


The University of Dayton (UD), a Roman Catholic school in Ohio, has announced that development of a new campus is now part of the institution’s master plan. Located at the southern most edge of the city, the new UD campus will be created as a result of the school’s $25 million purchase of NCR property in 2005.

Established in 1850 by members of the Society of Mary, the 11,700 student body is of the ten largest Catholic universities in the nation, offering more than 70 academic programs and is also home to one of the largest campus ministries in the world.

Current Projects Proposed Or Underway

According to the Dayton Business Journal, the following are some of the projects currently being planned by the university:

  • An expansion of the Immaculate Conception Chapel;
  • A new university center for the arts and arts plaza on Brown Street;
  • A STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) building;
  • A sustainable residence hall, possibly sited in the north student neighborhood; and
  • A mixed-use building on the corner of Brown and Stewart streets.

Raising Funds For Development

As far as development of the new campus, part of the financing would come from fundraising, public and private partnerships. The building of new residence halls would be funded through room and board fees.

Many of the buildings and playing fields currently on the former NCR campus could be used by the university, but no time frame has been established for when the project will officially start.
