WKU to Close Thompson Complex North Wing in January

wku1 300BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (11/9/13) - WKU will permanently close Thompson Complex North Wing in January due to failing HVAC systems.

The closure is expected to be complete and faculty offices, classrooms and research facilities relocated by Jan. 24.

An analysis of North Wing in 2005 determined that rehabilitation of the building was not financially viable, and the building was identified at that time for demolition. Since 2002 more than $60 million has been invested in WKU’s science facilities, including the construction of the Engineering and Biological Sciences Complex and Snell Hall and the renovation of College High Hall. Renovation of Thompson Complex Center Wing and demolition of the North Wing have been pending approval and funding by the Kentucky General Assembly since 2008 and will again be the University’s top capital project request in the 2014 session, which begins in January.

Thompson Complex North Wing opened in 1960 and currently houses the Biology Department and some offices for the Chemistry Department.
