Nichols House to be closed over summer for renovations
Nichols House on the Homewood campus will be closed this summer and events usually held there will be moved elsewhere while deferred maintenance and refurbishments are completed.
Work will be done to bring the university president’s official residence, completed in 1959, up to current code in such areas as electrical service, heating and air conditioning, and access for the disabled.
There will also be improvements to the public areas of the house, used for university events, and the living quarters will be prepared for President Daniels and his family.
The board of trustees requires the president to reside at Nichols House. The work this summer is being undertaken at the board’s direction and will be completed before the fall semester.
