Regents approved the schematic design for Lawyers Club renovations in December. The upgrade will bring air conditioning to the 1920s-era dormitory and create additional community spaces for student residents.
East Quadrangle, which houses roughly 860 students and the university's Residential College program, also will undergo a significant mechanical, electrical and aesthetic renovation.
Both renovations are scheduled to begin after winter semester classes finish and will continue during the 2012-2013 academic year.
Also to be discussed at the regents meeting: The school's College of Engineering wants to rename the existing Computer Science and Engineering Building the Bob and Betty Beyster Building because of a recent $15 million gift the family bestowed on the college.
