Construction Updates

Anticipated Construction—Spring Semester 2016/2017

Mary Fisher Dining – Renovation and addition to Mary Fisher Hall. This will house all board dining (all you care to eat) as well as retail dining services. Project is scheduled to open August of 2018

  • Current and continuing, we will be doing construction on Mary Fisher Hall. Construction will start at 7:00 am during the week and 8:00 am on weekends. Expect some noise and dust from the construction area.
  • Van Meter walkway will remain open most of the time but may need to be closed for short periods of time when bringing larger equipment to the south side of the building. We will notify the campus community if we need to close access.
  • Access within Mary Fisher limited to the residence hall wings.
  • Re-grading of Mary Fisher lawn will mean increased construction vehicles/trucks hauling dirt from Mary Fisher site down Stable Road.

Froelicher Hall Relocation – Froelicher Hall being relocated across from Mary Fisher near Tennis Courts in the summer. Buildings moving on or about June 20-June 30.

  • Starting in March, new site will be fenced; basketball court, swingset, grill and garages removed.
  • Parking on northwest side of Stable Road will be closed starting approximately in mid-March.
  • Earth moving vehicles will be moving dirt from temporary site to construction site starting in mid-March.

Interfaith Center – New addition to chapel for Interfaith Center including space for Hillel, Chaplain, prayer rooms, and programming space for people of all faiths. Expected completion late fall 2017.

  • Site will be fenced on northwest side of sidewalk to chapel, down to the Van Meter drop off area and to the loop road, starting in April.
  • There may be times when construction will impact Van Meter walkway when they are bringing in equipment but shouldn’t impact it on a day to day basis.
  • Chapel will be impacted by construction noise on the site.
  • Chapel will be off-line at some point for modifications to sanctuary, but we don’t have an exact date yet.

Summer 2017

Expect road closures and more impact due to the relocation of Tuttle, Gallagher, and Alcock houses of Froelicher.

First Year Village buildings B and C construction will start immediately after the relocation of the Froelicher houses. Fenced area will combine with Mary Fisher dining construction site and pedestrian traffic will be re-routed.
