An artist's rendering of what the E.H. Kraus Building will look like after its extensive renovation is complete in fall 2020.
In September 2016, the Board of Regents approved the Edward Henry Kraus Natural Science Building to become the School of Kinesiology's new home in 2020. Designed by renowned architect Albert Kahn, whose other campus masterpieces include Burton Memorial Tower, Hill Auditorium, and Hatcher Graduate Library, the Kraus Building has been a university landmark since 1915. We are honored to be the newest residents of this beautiful and historic structure.
Our goal, after a transformative renovation, is to have all of our facilities—classrooms, laboratories, academic and career advising offices, collaboration spaces, and more—in one amazing location right in the heart of central campus. For the first time in our school’s history, all our faculty, students, staff, and research will be together under one roof.
The slideshow above contains the very first renderings of our new space, including the lobby, commons, classrooms, and research areas. Keep visiting this page to see the latest updates as our transformation begins to take shape.

Construction on our new home was paused for six weeks due to Michigan’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order. Now that construction restrictions have been lifted, we’re ramping back up and are still on track for fall 2020 move-in and January 2021 classes.
