While it is the faculty and students who make Iowa State special, it is the campus environment and the places they do their work that have a profound impact on their ability to excel.

New and renovated facilities are located in nearly every sector of campus — both in terms of geography and academic discipline. The facilities represent critically needed additions to the academic landscape, which are essential for the future of the institution. The learning and research that takes place within the walls of Iowa State’s buildings enable the institution to attract and retain the very best faculty and students.

Private support is essential to Iowa State’s success. Examples of philanthropy in action with new and renovated facilities across campus include:

  • BioCentury Research Farm, Seed Science Center addition and Curtiss Hall renovations in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences
  • Gerdin Business Building
  • King Pavilion in the College of Design
  • Howe Hall, Hoover Hall and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Building Addition in the College of Engineering
  • Sally Rapp Beisser Student Services Center in MacKay Hall and the Palmer Human Development and Family Studies Building in the College of Human Sciences
  • Hach Hall, Snedecor Hall and the Carl Vondra Geology Field Camp in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
  • The Dr. W. Eugene and Linda Lloyd Veterinary Medical Center expansion and renovation of the large animal and companion animal hospitals
