U. Of Michigan Wants $120M Dental School Overhaul

Posted: Updated:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The University of Michigan wants to give its dental school a $120 million renovation and is asking the state to pay for 75 percent of the project.

The Ann Arbor News reports that the university says in a request to the state that its School of Dentistry is outdated and its cramped labs and limited space cannot adequately accommodate modern research and patient care.

The dental school was built in 1971.

In other projects, the University of Michigan says it plans to put $5.3 million into renovations for its North Campus student union, Pierpont Commons. The investment is part of a multi-year, $173 million plan to upgrade the school's unions and gyms.

Other planned renovation projects are coming before the Board of Regents on Thursday.
