Construction Update

Contractors are currently installing the gas lines that will connect each building to the mainline. All switch-overs from the old gas line to the new gas line, which will require gas to be turned off to each residence hall for up to several hours, will take place this summer, when residence hall occupancy is lowest. Each building shutdown is being coordinated with HRL, Special Programs, and other affected stakeholders. Work is on track to be complete prior to the start of the Fall 2017 semester.

We will be providing periodic updates on our progress, as well as additional information regarding specific impacts, throughout the course of the project. We appreciate your patience and understanding, we welcome your questions, and look forward to ongoing collaboration with the community as campus construction activity ramps up this summer.
