JWU's commitment to thoughtful historic renovation is most evident at the Denver Campus. Since opening in 2000, JWU has invested more than $48 million in reviving, upgrading and adapting structures to enhance and improve classrooms, culinary labs and residence halls.
Stabilizing and restoring Treat Hall — a national registered landmark — has involved extensive repairs. Great care has been taken to complete work in place, matching materials in an appropriate manner, and minimizing chemical and construction impact to the site.
The campus' latest renovation project turned historic Mason Hall into Wildcat Center, a 21st-century athletic facility. The transformation provided a regulation-size gym, doubling its initial capacity and allowing teams to comfortably compete on campus. Dedicated fitness space tripled in size and includes an aerobics studio and locker rooms. Expansion has been cleverly configured within the existing building shell, preserving the historic nature of the building's façade.
