Hesburgh Libraries - Center for Digital ScholarshipThe new research complex will complement the existing Center for Digital Scholarship at the Hesburgh Library.

SOUTH BEND — The University of Notre Dame will construct an $88 million multidisciplinary research building on part of the campus parking lot east of Hesburgh Library.

Ground will be broken in late summer or fall 2014 for the 200,000-square-foot facility, which will contain laboratory space for science and engineering research, said John Affleck-Graves, the university’s executive vice president.

The building doesn’t yet have a formal name.

Its construction will be the start of what is expected to be an East Quadrangle on campus. Another smaller research building is expected to be built in the future, perhaps just east of this first building.
