South Campus Chapel
A new prayer chapel is being planned near the south residential quad. Seating about 225 guests, the new chapel will not only be a place for students, faculty, and staff to pray daily, but will also serve as a venue for weddings, which could be held inside, or outside under an atrium. There is no expected start date for this project, but planners hope to have it constructed within the next three years.

Vines Center
With a practice facility for Liberty men’s and women’s basketball teams, a 68-seat luxury President’s Suite, a total seating capacity of more than 11,000, and a landscaped roof functioning as a walkway between the Residential and Academic Commons, the Vines Center is used to host sporting events, concerts, church services, conferences, and Convocation.

Jerry Falwell Library
The 4-story, 170,000-square-foot Jerry Falwell Library represents the largest investment by Liberty in any structure on campus. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, the library assists students in their academic pursuits by providing learning resources in both traditional and innovative formats.

DeMoss Campus Center Serving as Liberty University’s primary academic facility since the 1980s, DeMoss Hall is undergoing a 3-story, 175,000-square-foot expansion to provide a new student center. Expected to be completed by summer 2016, the expansion will include space for academic and administrative purposes, an art gallery, retail dining venues, a large event space, a bowling alley, and a comfortable lounge area opening onto the Academic Commons.

LaHaye Student Union
The 230,000-square-foot LaHaye Student Union boasts seven hardwood basketball courts, four volleyball courts, a six-lane 25-yard length pool, two indoor AstroTurf soccer fields, cardio and weight training rooms, multipurpose recreational space, and a 4,000-square-foot climbing area with a 40-foot climbing tower

Center for Music and the Worship Arts
The new 140,000-square-foot School of Music facility will be comprised of two linked 4-story buildings and will house 40 teaching studios complete with piano, songwriting, and music computer labs, as well as a fine arts concert hall capable of seating 1,600 guests. The majority of the facility will be completed in time for the Fall 2015 semester, while the concert hall will open in Spring 2016.

Science Hall Located across the lawn from the Jerry Falwell Library, the new Science Hall more than triples the size of the university’s former science facilities. Completed during the Spring 2015 semester, the 4-story, 121,000-square-foot building contains classrooms, an expansive auditorium, and more than 30 laboratories designed for hands-on learning.

Athletic Practice Facility
A new indoor practice facility is being planned at the site behind the baseball stadium and outdoor track. It will include a weight room and training room for all NCAA sports located in the athletics corridor — baseball, football, outdoor track, and soccer.

School of Aeronautics Hangar A new hangar at the Liberty University School of Aeronautics facility at Lynchburg Regional Airport is being built to allow pilots to take advantage of ramp space currently under construction. The 100-by-140 hangar will be used by the school for a variety of purposes, including storing aircraft and maintenance operations. It will also benefit Freedom Aviation, the flight operations center and aviation business used by the SOA.

Liberty Softball Stadium Mirroring features of the Liberty Baseball Stadium, the NCAA-regulation Liberty Softball Stadium includes locker rooms, a video scoreboard, AstroTurf with a clay infield, and 1,000 chairback seats for spectators.

New Residential Commons Phase one of the new Residential Commons was completed at the beginning of the Fall 2014 semester. The 9-story residence hall is capable of housing up to 1,200 students. Each room features a private bath, and every floor provides laundry facilities and a common lounge. An additional residence hall with similar features is presently under construction and is expected to be completed by the Spring 2016 semester.

Liberty Mountain Projects
Liberty’s expansive mountain property is home to the Morris Campus Garden (where students can grow their own produce), an astronomical observatory with six research-quality telescopes (including a 24-inch main scope), and a new clubhouse for Liberty’s NCAA golf team located near the Equestrian Center and motocross track.

School of Music
Two linked three-story buildings spanning 105,000 square feet will include a fine arts auditorium seating up to 1,200 guests. The building is expected to be completed by fall 2015.

Olympic Sports Complex
This new multipurpose athletic complex will be built near U.S. 460 at the north end of East Campus. It will include an Olympic-sized 50-meter pool and diving well. Athletics programs currently using the indoor track at Green Hall will move to an indoor track in the new complex. The wrestling and men’s and women’s gymnastics teams will also be housed there.

Prayer/Wedding Chapel
A new prayer chapel is being planned near the south residential quad. Seating about 225, it will not only be a place for people to pray daily, but can accommodate weddings, which can be held inside or outside under an atrium. Planners hope to have it constructed in the next three years.

School of Aeronautics Hangar
A new hangar at the Liberty University School of Aeronautics facility at Lynchburg Regional Airport is being built to allow pilots to take advantage of new ramp space currently being constructed there. The 100-by-140 hangar will be used by the school for a variety of purposes, including storing aircraft and maintenance operations. It will also benefit Freedom Aviation, the flight operations center and aviation business used by the SOA.

NCAA Softball Field
A new NCAA-regulation softball field is planned near the Hershey-Esbenshade Tennis Courts below Green Hall. The facility will include locker rooms and plenty of stands for spectators. It is expected to be started by the end of the year.

DeMoss Hall Expansion
Serving as Liberty’s main academic building since the 1980s, the Arthur S. DeMoss Learning Center will be expanded to provide more student lounge space and a food court. This three-level, 40,000-square-foot campus center will be built onto the back of the building once the School of Music and Science Hall are complete.

New Residence Halls
The first of six new residence halls being built at the site of the former Champion Circle halls is under construction. The eight-story tower is expected to be completed in time for the 2014-15 school year. It will provide 1,200 beds, enough to replace all 16 of the original halls built there in the 1970s.

Science Hall
The new, three-story, 100,000-square-foot Science Hall will more than triple the size of the university’s previous science building. Work is already under way and is expected to be completed by the fall of 2015.

Athletic Practice Facility
A new indoor practice facility is being planned at the site of the David’s Place parking lot, behind the new baseball stadium. Set for Fall 2013, the project will include a weight room and training room for all NCAA sports.

Vehicular Tunnels
Currently under construction on the west side of campus, a four-lane tunnel under the railroad tracks will connect Regents Parkway, Liberty’s perimeter road, to Wards Road, emptying into an intersection near Harvard Street. It is expected to be operational by the end of the year and fully complete by 2014.

Football Stadium Expansion
Future plans call for an expansion to the student section (east side) of Williams Stadium, bringing seating capacity to 25,000.

Parking Garage
A new parking garage is being considered for commuter students at the site of the old baseball stadium. Proposals call for a five-level garage that could hold 2,500 vehicles. Liberty has not been able to plan a parking garage on main campus in the past, due to the road system there being inadequate to handle the traffic flow it would generate. The new vehicular tunnel at Wards Road will now make the garage possible, as well as a four-lane road running from the tunnel to Liberty University Barnes & Noble Bookstore.

Graduate Campus
The new Center for Medical and Health Sciences now under construction will be the first building on Liberty’s new professional/graduate campus. Administrators are considering new academic buildings at the Campbell County site for Liberty’s graduate programs, including the A.W. and Lois Overton Graduate School of Business, Liberty University Baptist Theological Seminary, and Liberty University School of Law. Nearby off-campus housing is also being planned.
