building a legacy

In September 2016, the Board of Regents approved the Edward Henry Kraus Natural Science Building to become the School of Kinesiology's new home in 2020. Designed by renowned architect Albert Kahn, whose other campus masterpieces include Burton Memorial Tower, Hill Auditorium, and Hatcher Graduate Library, the Kraus Building has been a university landmark since 1915. We are honored to be the newest residents of this beautiful and historic structure.

Our goal, after a transformative renovation, is to have all of our facilities—classrooms, laboratories, academic and career advising offices, collaboration spaces, and more—in one amazing location right in the heart of central campus. For the first time in our school’s history, all our faculty, students, staff, and research will be together under one roof.

Later this fall, we look forward to sharing more information with you about the Kraus renovation, including renderings of what the finished space will look like. In the meantime, please continue to visit this page to see the latest updates.
