What Univ. of Minnesota gets in bonding bill

Getting some goodies

We’ve seen in the previous post that the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) system will be spending $132 million in various construction and renovation projects, $98 million of which is being financed through the recently signed state bonding bill.

What about the University of Minnesota?

It’s looking at about $89 million in projects, all financed through state bonds:

  • $51 for a physics and nanotechnology building on the Twin Cities campus;
  • $13 million to construct the biomedical nuclear magnetic resonance imaging lab, as well as take measures to curb the disruption that the Central Corridor light rail construction project will have on various U research labs.
  • $25 million in various repair and replacement projects (roofs, air-conditioning and heating systems, etc.)
