Construction Update

New Residence Hall


Despite the challenges posed by a historically wet winter, one month into summer, work on the New Residence Hall is moving quickly and progressing well. The project is on track for completion before the start of the Fall 2018 academic year.

The construction of several retaining walls is now complete, and work on additional retaining walls and building foundations is moving forward.

Grading work has commenced and will continue for most of the summer. This potentially disruptive work is on track to be complete prior to the start of the Fall 2017 semester.
