Making North Campus a Destination


On Thursday, March 19th, the U‑M Board of Regents approved a design for the $6.9 million Eda U. Gerstacker Grove project on North Campus. 

The Grove will include:

  • New walkways and a large, paved plaza next to the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Tower
  • Elevated landforms around the plaza that create a natural amphitheater
  • Energy efficient lighting
  • More than 180 additional trees in a rolling landscape, with rain gardens that capture storm water runoff
  • A sand volleyball court
  • Improved wireless and electrical capabilities
  • Spaces for tents where events could be held

Construction for the project will begin this summer. Read more: http://​myumi​.ch/​LRbmL
