Carson Hall Renovations

Renovation overview

The main purpose of this renovation is to add an elevator at each end of Carson Hall, so that the upper floors of Carson, Morey and MacVicar are accessible for all. Additionally, the building infrastructure systems are due to be updated to more modern and energy efficient systems. The second floor will include classrooms, a Dean’s suite for The School of Arts and Sciences, and newly renovated restrooms. The third floor will be dedicated to new mechanical equipment. One of our most historic buildings is expected to become one of our most desired buildings on campus!  Construction began in November 2022, and we hope to be complete for the fall 2024 semester.


These exciting changes will bring some growing pains for the campus. The Carson classrooms are closed until construction is complete. Several functions have relocated, as follows:

  • The Veteran and Adult Learner Lounge has relocated to Morey Hall Room 149. 
  • The Writer’s Block has relocated to Lougheed Learning Commons 106. 
  • The Math Lab has relocated to Suite 127 LoCAL (Library). 
  • Some Math and Philosophy faculty offices have moved to adjacent rooms within Morey and MacVicar Halls. 

Spring 2024 Project Update

The Carson Hall Renovation is still in full swing. We had a very challenging summer and Fall, but we also made some serious progress on the project. The elevator shafts are complete and awaiting the elevator contractor to start installation. 1st Floor walls are mostly complete and ready for paint. 2nd Floor walls are framed with mechanical, electrical and plumbing being installed throughout. The 3rd Floor Mechanical room equipment is being installed and piped/wired. The new domestic water line is complete (adding sprinkler to the building) and the water is back on to Carson and the adjacent buildings! We truly appreciate everyone that remained patient and understanding through the power and water outages. We were all reminded why we schedule such tasks during the summer, while the campus isn’t as busy. The good news is that the major outages are behind us and we have improved systems in place.

The Morey/Carson and MacVicar/Carson entrance vestibules will reopen this week - we are aiming for Thursday (8/24). Please see the partial campus map (PDF) for reference. The Carson Mailboxes and Mail Window will also reopen and regular mail services will resume immediately.
