— The Kansas Board of Regents on Thursday approved renovation projects at Kansas University’s Nichols Hall and Dyche Hall to improve and modernize those facilities.

The Nichols Hall renovation will cost $4.7 million, and the Dyche Hall renovation will cost $1.5 million. Both will be funded from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The Nichols Hall project entails renovating and expanding the Bioinformatics Computing Facility Core. In Dyche Hall, a suite of research labs and a server room will be renovated.

I agree! Those are two of the most beautiful buildings on campus and in the entire city. It sounds like a staggering amount of money, but if they don't keep up with those old buildings, they'll have big problems. It sounds like the reno will make them more functional for today's uses, and the cost is a lot less than it would be to build new structures.

That is great news for KU!!! Dyche Hall is a beautiful building and the Museum of Natural History is a wonderful resource for the Lawrence community!
