Renovation Updates

First Week of School
We look forward to welcoming the campus community into the renovated 1st floor and 2nd floor west wing. Students, staff and faculty can use both north (the new Vertical Village) and south (Brubeck Way) entrances.

This re-opening signals the conclusion of Phase One. Simultaneously, we are initiating Phase Two, which closes the 3rd floor and 2nd floor east wing for the fall semester. Phase Three – a Starbucks café – is in design development. View images of the newly renovated spaces below and plan to come by soon to see these beautiful new spaces for yourself:
