Renovations taking place at Memorial University’s Battery Facility became more visible this week.
Demolition of the city-view wing (the oldest section of the building, closest to Signal Hill Road) has begun. While significant work has already taken place inside the building, the current phase, set to continue over the next couple weeks, will significantly alter both the look and the footprint of the building.
All 85 rooms in the newly renovated Battery Facility Graduate Accommodations will be occupied this fall, bringing together students from across Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada and the world. The students represent a broad range of disciplines at Memorial, ranging from the social sciences and humanities to science and engineering.
