Westbrook building replacement

Westbrook Music building

The $75 million project, funded by the Nebraska Legislature through LB 384, will revitalize the southwest corner of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s City Campus. The building, home to the Glenn Korff School of Music, will provide new state-of-the-art facilities for current and future students. The project will include a mix of old and new construction, with renovations of the southwest wing of the current building connecting to approximately 75,000 square feet of new construction.

The new building will span across the two parking lots west of the current building, at the corner of 10th and Q streets. Construction will begin with utility work and the demolition of the parking lots. The lots will close on the evening of Dec. 18 to prepare for the work to start. Pedestrians who enter campus from the southwest corner on foot or bike may also need to find alternate routes.

Prominent Structures

The construction of Westbrook will occur in phases. As new portions of the building are completed, current portions will be removed or renovated. When the north part of the existing building is taken down, it will leave space for additional green space attached to the arts quad.



On the east side of Westbrook, the university’s iconic columns (previously located by Memorial Stadium) are planned to be placed in the vicinity of 11th and R, near the connection between Westbrook and Kimball Recital Hall. The concept, announced by Chancellor Ronnie Green during his 2022 State of Our University Address, will create a new gateway to campus.

“University Hall was the first and most prominent building on the university’s campus, and as the campus grew, it was the gateway,” Green said in the address. “We will place the columns … creating a new entrance to our campus, one rich in history and brimming with new activity.”
