Built in 1974, Magnus Wahlstrom Library is an imposing eight-story structure situated on Park Avenue just a short block from the Arch at Seaside Park. The upper floors of the library offer magnificent views of Seaside Park, Long Island Sound, and downtown Bridgeport. The funding and construction of the Magnus Wahlstrom Library was undertaken as part of a three-phase planning and fundraising program that also produced two residence halls and the Arnold Bernhard Arts and Humanities Center. Wahlstrom Library was opened during the height of enrollment at the University. It has continually played a central role in campus identity and Bridgeport South End identity.
The Library has been in use continually. Significant resources have been devoted to upgrading the HVAC system in recent years. Elevators are in need of repair and upgrade.
