SUNY Geneseo successfully secured funding for three multimillion-dollar campus improvement projects that will significantly improve services for our campus community. These major initiatives are funded by the State University Construction Fund (SUCF).

Status updates for each of the projects are below.

College Infrastructure Project

The estimated $10 million improvement project will provide a needed modernization of the infrastructure for that portion of the campus and includes new storm and sanitary sewers, domestic water supply, network infrastructure, and surface lighting.

College Circle between Welles and Brodie Hall has not been upgraded in nearly 60 years. In addition to the subsurface work, the project will result in broader driving lanes, enhanced crosswalks, expanded sidewalks, new retaining walls, benches, improved landscaping, and a new college directory.

This project is currently in construction and is expected to continue for 18 months, with College Drive scheduled to reopen in Fall of 2024, and the entire project scheduled to be completed in the Spring of 2025.

Sturges Hall Renovation

This prioritized project aligns with our campus master planning and will be the first major renovation of Sturges Hall since the building was constructed in 1938.

Sturges will experience a complete renovation that will remove all interior walls and utilities while preserving historical significance of items such as the auditorium, grand tower stairway, windows, and clock. In addition, the renovated building will have many new classrooms and collaboration spaces, a tutoring center, a testing center, and a historically restored auditorium.

Scheduled reopen during the 2026-2027 academic year.
