Notre Dame students look forward to campus renovations

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- University of Notre Dame President Father John Jenkins announced the school’s plan for major renovations Tuesday evening.

University spokesman Dennis Brown says the school hasn’t officially announced its plans but says there are plans in motion.

He confirmed Notre Dame will be building two new residence halls, renovating the Hesburgh Library, and constructing a multi-disciplinary research facility.

Students think the added space will attract students.

“I think it’s a good idea for the university. Always with the idea of the residence halls being able to have more students here, being able to involve more students with the mission of the university is always a good thing,” says freshman Brandon Roach.

Junior Andre Smith agreed.

“I think it’s always great to expand the university and see how big we can get," said Smith.

Students say they’re especially pleased with the university’s decision to renovate the Hesburgh Library.

“The Hesburgh over there is probably one of the most important buildings on campus in terms of how many students use it every day for their work. So renovating that and more book space is always good,” Roach said.

The university hopes that building two new residence halls will help with overcrowding issues.
