Plans remain on track for the Admissions Office to move to Smith Hall during spring break. The Counseling Center, the Center for Academic Resources (CFAR), and Disability Services for Students (DSS) will relocate to the former international students’ dorm as well.
Those moves also will take place during the week of March 14.
The reshuffling of departments is being done to make way for the new Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics, slated to be built on Garrison Avenue. Alumnus, entrepreneur and philanthropist Peter T. Paul gave UNH $25 million in 2008 to help fund the school.
The Admissions Office will occupy the first and ground floor of the 17,000-square-foot renovated Smith Hall while the Counseling Center will settle in on the third and fourth floor. CFAR is leaving Wolff House, which will become the temporary home of SHARPP (Sexual Harassment and Rape Prevention Program), to share the second floor of Smith with DSS, now located in the MUB.
The Center for Family Business in Verrette House is getting temporary quarters in the Waterworks building on Waterworks Road. Eventually, it will be located in the Peter T. Paul College.
Professional Development and Training and the McNair Program will share space on the ground floor of Stoke Hall. Academic Affairs BSC is moving from there up to the first floor space now home to part of the Registrar’s Office, which will consolidate its staff into the first floor back wing where the rest of the department is now located.
Grant, Verrette, Schofield and Batchellor House will be demolished to accommodate the new business school. University Communications and Marketing, housed in Schofield, will move to the New England Center sometime after commencement.
