Much needed renovations coming to SU’s Blackwell Hall

SALISBURY, Md. – One of the oldest buildings on Salisbury University’s campus is getting some much-needed renovations.

Following Maryland’s recent legislative session, $1.9 million is being sent to the university to expand and repurpose Blackwell Hall. The former campus library-turned-storage building will be expanded by 6,000 square feet.  We’re told this is being done to relocate all student services, which are currently scattered around campus, into one central place.

Salisbury University spokesperson Jason Rhodes says this isn’t the only change coming to Blackwell Hall.

“As well as our admissions office, and that’s sort of the second idea behind the renovations. is that when prospective students come to campus, we want to send them to a building that’s open and welcoming and sort of give them right in a nutshell the idea of what the college experience will be like,” says Rhodes.

Planning will start this summer, and renovations are slated to begin during the summer of 2024, with the new Blackwell Hall expected to open in the fall of 2026.
