Chalmers Library


The new library will be a hub for undergraduate research and experiential learning.

A transformational gift in progress

The development of a new academic quadrangle is in progress. Called the West Quad for its location on the west side of Middle Path, the space will be anchored by Chalmers Library, a hub for undergraduate research, experiential learning and academic and career advising.

Joining the library will be an interdisciplinary academic building for the social sciences and a new home for admissions and financial aid. These developments enable Kenyon to make major strides toward becoming a more accessible campus.

The library is expected to open in spring of 2021, with construction of the other facilities wrapping up a year later.
