Expansion, Renovation and New Construction

Lindenwood University has spent more than $25 million since 2013 to renovate and expand it's historic Belleville campus, the longtime site of Belleville Township High School.

Projects include:

  • $8 million for the two new dorms, a female residence hall called the Ladies Lynx Lodge and the male only Fred J. Kern Residence Hall
  • $2 million to buy the former Travel Lodge motel on West Main Street and convert it into student housing
  • $1 million to buy 20 houses which are used as student housing
  • $2 million for renovations to the campus football stadium which was originally built in 1940
  • $1.2 million to create a communications center complete with radio and television studios
  • $1 million for work on the student center and dining area
  • An additional several hundred thousand dollars was spent on landscaping and other cosmetic work to restore the historic look of the 100-year-old campus
Also renovated were the historic Ittner-designed auditorium, built in 1924, which included the construction of an attached welcome center, and the administrative and classroom buildings. Campus offices used by Belleville Township High School District 201 were recently converted for Lindenwood use as office space needed to accommodate a growing staff.
