Under construction

2 January 2019

A new year always brings exciting changes. During 2019 the university will be upgrading the HVAC system in the Hunt Library building. A significant portion of the construction will occur at the Hunt Institute in our offices on the fifth floor. We will be closed to the public from January through April. We apologize for any inconvenience. For more information, please contact us.
