ItemCampus Renovations handout sheet(2018)"Beginning in June 2017, the College began the largest renovation project in its history—with a two-year comprehensive restoration of the iconic Commons building, which exemplifies, through its design, programming, legacy, and name, the core ambitions and mission of a Bennington education. Upon its completion in Summer 2019, Commons will house ADA-accessible classrooms and other learning spaces, expanded and modernized dining facilities, a new north entrance, a new bakery and cafe, bookstore, post office, and additional social spaces. To ensure and enhance the quality of the lived experience for Bennington students during this period, the College has undertaken a series of additional renovations — creating several new facilities through the revitalization and adaptation of existing buildings."
