New Facilities Slated to Open in 2021

The Department of Computer Science will relocate during the 2020-21 academic year to a newly renovated facility in the former Music and Theatre Building. The 58,000-square-foot project will include new classroom, laboratory and office spaces, as well as an enclosed walkway to connect the facility to Kettering Labs. Levin Porter Architects of Miamisburg designed the facility; Sidney-based Ferguson Construction Co. will oversee construction. The new space is expected to be occupied in January 2021.
