A New Gateway

Creating a Space for the 21st Century Gator

Peabody Hall, built in 1913 and located on the southeastern corner of the Plaza of the Americas, was first home to the University of Florida’s education college. After a stint as the printing site for the student newspaper, the building was added to the U.S. National Register for Historic Places in 1979 and its classrooms converted to offices in 1990.

Now, the second and third levels of Peabody will be redesigned to add efficient and collaborative spaces. The project, started in Summer 2021, is the first time the spaces are being upgraded in more than 30 years.

The spaces being renovated currently house the Dean of Students Office, which includes Campus Assistance and Resources for Empowerment (CARE) and Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution as well as the Center for New Students, Parent & Family Engagement.
