After much anticipation, construction on Martha Van Rensselaer (MVR) Hall will begin in August 2018. The renovations are the final phase of the complete upgrade to MVR and are very exciting to the College. 

These changes aim to improve the quality, productivity and overall experience in Martha Van Rensselaer Hall (MVR), in part by creating spaces and designs that promote collaboration, creativity and community.

At the same time, the construction work will significantly impact the Human Ecology community and its visitors. The renovations require approximately 200 people to relocate to temporary office and research space. 

This MVR Renovation website gives a view of the project and helpful resources for faculty, staff, students, and visitors in preparation for and during the construction, including a quick way to search for people who might have moved to a new location during renovations.
