It was a momentous return from Intersession for the Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine (GSDM), which officially opened its new Patient & Visitor entrance as of 6:30 a.m. on January 2, 2019. The new entrance is located at 635 Albany Street, which will be the school’s new official address.
The opening of the new entrance is an important milestone in GSDM’s addition and renovation construction project, and marks the near completion of the project’s first phase. The dental school’s East Newton Street entrance closed as of January 1, 2019, but will be renovated and reopened as the entrance for faculty, staff, students, and residents in early 2020. In the interim, signage is now in place directing patients, visitors, faculty, staff, students, and residents to the Albany Street entrance.
“After months of hard work and dedication, it’s incredibly exciting to bring the first phase of the project ‘online,’” said GSDM Dean Jeffrey W. Hutter. “I am grateful for the support, patience, and flexibility that the GSDM community – and indeed, the entire Boston University Medical Campus – demonstrates every day amid this exciting, but at times disruptive, construction process.”
Phase II will begin in earnest in early 2019 and involves many exciting developments, including a seven-story addition on the west side of the building and a two-story addition on the north side of the building.
