Altgeld and Illini Halls project stream

Through the Altgeld and Illini Halls project, the University of Illinois will restore and renovate Altgeld Hall and replace its neighbor across Wright Street, Illini Hall, with a new building. 

Illini Hall will be replaced with a world-class facility for learning, innovation, and discovery in the mathematical sciences. It will be home to a new data science center as part of the Champaign-Urbana hub of the Illinois Innovation Network, which consist of various hubs across the state including the Discovery Partners Institute.

The project also includes the modernization and restoration of Altgeld Hall. Increased capacity and modernized learning spaces will benefit all Illinois students who study in both of these buildings.
