We will continue to provide an update by email regarding any changes the campus can expect next month, and periodic updates will follow. The Construction Advisory web site will be an ongoing resource for information as work moves forward. Signage will be installed at key locations to assist with wayfinding. Due to the fluid nature of construction, this information is subject to change, but we will do our best to provide timely communication if changes are necessary.
