St. Louis, MO – The University of Missouri-St. Louis has spent more than $192,000 to renovate its chancellor's house.

The university owns the 69-year old house near campus where Chancellor Thomas George lives.

Officials say the house was due for an overhaul because the last major work was done in 1986.

UM-St. Louis's last chancellor, Blanche Touhill, lived at her home in Ladue. But she entertained guests at the off-campus house.

An UMSL spokesman told the Post-Dispatch renovating the university-owned building makes more economic sense than buying a new one.
