Our $22 million renovation of Alumni Hall, which began in 2021, is nearly complete and the building will be open for classes this fall.
The building will house the departments of Business, Economics and Political Science and the Division of University Advancement.
The Completion of the Alumni Hall renovation is an important milestone in SUNY Oneonta's Clean Energy Master Plan, which seeks to make the campus Carbon Neutral by 2045, eliminating the use of fossil fuels for building operations. Alumni Hall is fully heated and cooled through ground source heat pumps and an array of 39 geothermal bores housed beneath the parking lot. Renewable energy purchasing offsets the electrical power required to operate the building. This building is extremely energy efficient, reducing campus carbon emissions by 130 tons annually through new technology and building materials. The project will be certified LEED Gold through the Green Building Council.
