MU in Brick and Mortar
Welcome to the MU in Brick and Mortar web site. The site provides information about buildings and monuments on the Columbia campus. Information about campus structures includes dates of construction, how each building looked at the time of construction, when new additions were added, and general background on construction. The web pages offer building elevations, architectural renderings, and many photographs in order to provide a historical progression of changes that have occurred on campus.
The web site was originally developed and subsequently augmented by the Building and Infrastructure Archives of the University of Missouri Campus Facilities Division with funding provided by an Institute of Museum and Library Services grant and assistance from University Archives and MU Libraries. The site was maintained by the Building and Infrastructure Archives until 2016, when it was transferred to University Archives. A snapshot of the original non-building pages has been saved as a PDF here.
Please select the building and year you wish to view from the complete list of buildings and years of construction. You may also use the image map of campus to select a building.
This project was originally developed with support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the state of Missouri.
