McDonald Hall & Kohl Hall Renovations
On Friday, Dec. 9, the Bowling Green State University Board of Trustees approved a two-year renovation project that will upgrade McDonald Hall and Kohl Hall with air conditioning throughout both the buildings.
The renovations will be made in two phases:
2023-24 Academic Year | McDonald Hall will be closed.
During the closure, the building will be upgraded with air conditioning in all bedrooms, study spaces and social lounges. McDonald will re-open as a residence hall for new and returning students in fall 2024.
2024-25 Academic Year | Kohl Hall will be closed.
During the closure, the building will be upgraded with air conditioning in all bedrooms, study spaces and social lounges. Kohl will re-open as a residence hall for new students and returning learning community students in fall 2025.
Air conditioning improvements have been something students have been asking for and the University is excited to be able to offer air conditioned beds in two more residence halls by the end of the project.
Now that the project has been approved by the Board, the Office of Residence Life will begin working with campus partners and planning for Phase 1 during the spring 2023 semester.
Updates about this project will continue to be made on this page.
