Construction activities continue as the campus is prepared for the start of fall semester. See below to learn about a number of current projects and how they will affect you:

Elevator Replacement Project

The first phase of the Elevator Replacement Project is underway and will continue through October. Currently, crews are working on the two elevators nearest the front entrance of McCormack Hall, and one of the two elevators near the front of Wheatley Hall.

Please use the back sets of elevators in both buildings as this work continues. One front elevator in Wheatley will remain operational for passengers who need to reach the fifth and sixth floors of the building.

As part of this work, a crane will be on campus periodically, starting on Monday, August 7, between Wheatley and McCormack halls near the loading dock.  Part of the plaza will be surrounded by orange temporary fences for protection and safety.

All 14 elevators in McCormack and Wheatley halls, the Quinn Administration Building, and the Clark Athletic Center will be replaced in phases through 2018. 

University Hall Connector Work

A section of the connector between the Campus Center and University Hall will be closed for approximately a week. Pedestrians can use external sidewalks on either side of the connector.

Clark Athletic Center Waterproofing Work

For three weekends starting Saturday, August 12, a crane will be located in the Clark circle to allow access to the skylight and building exterior in that area. Shuttle buses will not pick up or drop off at the Clark during those weekends.

Catwalk Glazing Repairs

Crews are reglazing the catwalk through August. Fencing has been placed beneath the catwalk on the plaza to protect pedestrians and direct them around the work zones.
