IU South Bend’s Greenlawn Hall, one of the oldest buildings on the campus, is scheduled to be torn down, according to Assistant Director of Facilities Management Andrew Krouse.

Though the building will be demolished, the project has not been started and currently no date has been set for the project to begin.

Krouse confirmed that Greenlawn Hall will no longer be open late nights. The building will also no longer have a functioning computer lab. This is instead replaced by a 24 hour computer lab opening up in the new Education and Arts building.

According to Krouse, classes will no longer be held in the building this year. As of right now, there are also no plans to utilize the building throughout the school year.
Krouse also confirmed that the project to tear the building down does not currently have funding, and that no plans have been made this year to fund the project. Discussions of next year’s budget for the demolition have not begun.
