ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A ceremony and tours are marking the reopening of the West Quadrangle residence hall at the University of Michigan following a $112 million renovation.

Events take place Wednesday at the hall, which first opened in 1939 and houses about 1,000 students. They’ve already moved in.

The Ann Arbor school says the renovation is the first top-to-bottom upgrade of the hall in more than 75 years and includes infrastructure improvements as well as refurbished student rooms and bath facilities.

West Quad’s historic facade and courtyards were restored. Interior common spaces have been redesigned, adding new community and study spaces. The building will also be home to The Connector, a new cultural space dedicated to diversity and inclusion.

The renovations are part of a decade-long plan to upgrade dorms at the school.
