Funded in part thanks to a generous donation from the Dahod Family, renovations for the new Dahod Family Alumni Center in the BU Castle were completed in the summer of 2018. The Center celebrates the legacy of BU alumni through displays, kiosks, and exhibits and expands the Castle’s functionality as an iconic, high-profile location for alumni, faculty and student events. The mansion’s exterior face, roof, and windows were restored, and the interior was renovated to accommodate Alumni Relations offices, meeting spaces, and the new Dahod Family Alumni Center. First floor space continues to be used for Events and Conferences and will also now be used for a new faculty dining program. HVAC, electrical, and plumbing systems were upgraded. An expanded commercial kitchen was added to the basement level, and a four-season seating area addition with exterior patio was added to the BU Pub. In addition, the LEED certified project provides ADA accessibility to the 100-year-old Tudor Revival structure.
