River Street Sidewalk Closing and Building Survey

Beginning on Monday, June 11, the sidewalk along the east side of River Street from Slocum Hall to Bedford Hall will be closed for construction work. Please use the sidewalk along South Franklin if possible. As always, please stay alert for changing pedestrian routes in the construction areas in and around campus.

In addition, please note that architects from Borton Lawson are on campus this week performing a building survey at several buildings. As part of this survey, they will be walking and scanning the Dorothy Dickson Darte Center, Henry Student Center, Breiseth, Stark, Cohen and University Towers. Please note they may also need to access some of the surrounding buildings to complete the surveys of these buildings.  

The architects also will be reviewing the exterior of these buildings by flying a drone according to the following schedule:

Henry Student Center

June 12:
