Capital Improvements

D'Youville College is undertaking approximately $30 million in capital improvements to grow our capacity to serve students and continue the growth of our athletic programs.

Regional Asset

D'Youville's commitment to the Prospect Hill neighborhood, City of Buffalo and Western New York can be measured by its $53.2 million in capital investment since 1999. The college has added academic space, student housing, a new library, athletic facilities and has cooperated with municipal authorities in neighborhood improvements. It's been estimated that D'Youville College provides an annual economic impact to the region of over $120 million.

The D'Youville School of Arts, Sciences and Education Building

The college is moving forward with a plan to renovate the Gateway-Longview complex located at Niagara and Jersey Streets, and to move Liberal Arts, Education, Educational Leadership, Math and Natural Sciences, Business, ADVANCE and MBA classrooms, laboratories and faculty offices into this space.

The former Gateway-Longview building complex is approximately 60,000 square feet and is comprised of a small central building, flanked by a north wing (auditorium), a 1950 addition, and a south wing, a 1928 addition. The plan would be to replace the north wing and central building by new construction, while the 1928 addition will be retained, with a new increase of 20,000 square feet for a new building complex of 80,000 square feet. Based on current cost projection figures, this project is anticipated to cost approximately $20,167,500.

Outdoor Athletic Field Complex

The college completed construction of outdoor athletic facilities to enhance athletics to promote a more vibrant campus life and to meet requirements of athletic accrediting bodies for the college's sports teams. The field, a short walk from the D'Youville campus, is D'Youville's first-ever outdoor athletic fields and are NCAA Division III regulation size for both soccer and lacrosse and features a state of the art softball diamond.
