ST. CLOUD - Several buildings at St. Cloud State University are in need of renovations and repairs.

The University is currently creating a long term plan to review the future of its buildings. The plan will be completed in one year. Director of facilities management, John Frischmann, says Stewart Hall and the Education Building both need updates and repairs.

A committee of students, faculty and administrators are looking at how to better use the 51 buildings on campus. The plan hopes to better organize the spaces on campus.

The plan will also guide the University when it goes to the state for funding requests. Due to declining enrollment numbers, it could be possible that the University considers removing a residence hall.

The University cites the recent Integrated Science and Engineering Laboratory Facility (ISELF) as a model for updates and future buildings due to its flexible spaces.

The facility review has the goal to make sure all academic, athletics and residential structures meet the needs and goals of the University.
