A new presence at the heart of the Danforth Campus

Coinciding with the launch of the Arts & Sciences Strategic Plan, Washington University in St. Louis will construct a new state-of-the-art building for Arts & Sciences, the largest school on the Danforth Campus. 

The building and surrounding landscape will create a new quad at the heart of campus, west of Olin Library and north of Graham Chapel. The facility will bring ample space and opportunity for Arts & Sciences to:

  • House premier departments and programs
  • Support our commitment to diversity and inclusion
  • Strengthen student-facing academic services and resources
  • Offer signature events and gathering spaces that highlight our dynamic intellectual community
