Regents approve additional funding for Baldwin Hall expansion, renovation

The University System of Georgia Board of Regents approved a $1 million increase for the budget to renovate and expand UGA’s Baldwin Hall at its Aug. 20 meeting in Atlanta.

Baldwin Hall is located on the Athens campus at the northeast corner of South Jackson and Baldwin streets. A total of $8.75 million now will go toward the expansion of the building. The amended budget will provide for Americans with Disabilities Act accessible restrooms, additional class space, a higher capacity elevator and additional offices.

Funding of this cost increase of $1 million will be from UGA institutional fund reserves.
