Regents approve Alice Lloyd Hall renovation

The Board of Regents on Thursday approved a major renovation of Alice Lloyd Hall as part of the Residential Life Initiatives, a comprehensive plan to improve and expand the residential experience at U-M.

Like the recent renovations of other U-M residence halls, the Lloyd project will upgrade the building’s infrastructure. Improvements will include new fire detection and suppression systems, plumbing, heating and ventilation systems, renovated bath facilities, improvements in Internet access, and accessibility modifications.

“The renovation of Alice Lloyd Hall will be an important milestone in our planning and commitments to improve the residential experience at U-M,” said Vice President for Student Affairs E. Royster Harper. “Innovative uses of new community spaces will include ideas from students, faculty and staff, with the purpose of making campus living an ongoing learning and growing experience for students.”

Constructed in 1949 and named in honor of the dean of women during the 1930s and ‘40s, Alice Crocker Lloyd Hall is a 176,000-gross-square-foot structure housing approximately 560 students.
