Howard University has announced a $785 million plan to build three new academic halls and renovate several existing facilities on its Washington, D.C. campus. 

The new academic centers will house teaching and research in health sciences; arts and communications; and associated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics programs, the university says in a news release. They will be Howard's first new academic buildings since 1984.

The three planned buildings:

  • The Health Sciences Complex will house the College of Medicine, College of Dentistry, College of Pharmacy and the College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences
  • The Center for Arts and Communications will house the Chadwick A. Boseman College of Fine Arts and the Cathy Hughes School of Communications
  • The STEM Center will house various STEM programs and disciplines including physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, mathematics and associated labs. 

The new academic halls are expected to be completed by 2026. 

The university also will renovate the Myrtilla Miner building. It will house the School of Education and the Howard University Middle School for Mathematics and Science.
