A number of major facilities projects will keep Maryville University’s campus buzzing during the summer months, including new learning spaces, additional student housing, Donius University Center renovations and expansion of the Cyber Fusion Center.

Saints Hall
Construction of Phase II of the east wing of Saints Hall begins in late May. Phase I of the four-story residence hall was completed last year. The augmentation will create an additional 217 student living spaces – for a total of 445 – and additional lounge areas. The new wing of Saints Hall will open in Fall 2018.

Classroom Renovation
Renovations to two Anheuser-Busch Academic Center classroom spaces will result in a state-of-the art flexible learning center. The center will feature upgraded technology tools and customizable seating to boost collaboration and interactivity among students and faculty.

Cyber Fusion Center
The Cyber Fusion Center (CFC), located in the Anheuser-Busch Academic Center, is one of the most technology-rich spaces on campus. The Center will be expanded from its current 800 square feet to over 3,000 square feet to accommodate growth in the cyber security academic program and to allow the CFC to serve more clients. The CFC is managed by faculty experts and staffed by teams of students. Currently, the Center offers services to more than 150 clients in 10 countries. Opening later this summer, the space will also serve students studying app development. Students will design apps for charities and social causes at no charge.

Donius University Center
The Donius University Center will undergo significant renovations over the coming months. Donius houses offices for Student Life, Student Involvement, Student Government, the M Store, LJs and other gathering spaces. The Center for Student Engagement, a popular hub in Donius, will be revamped to better serve the growing number of student organizations.
