Campus maps show the facilities planning and construction project sites for 2016. The intent of the general map is to identify the locations and dates that will be affected, as well as identify the project.

As always, some projects will affect pedestrian and vehicular movements more than others. Those projects will be supplemented with additional phasing and traffic plans.

As projects progress, larger more detailed maps will be provided as needed to communicate details in advance of the changes. The two projects with the most impact on pedestrian and vehicular movements are the new residence hall and bookstore, and the Centennial Hall steam and condensate line replacement.

New Residence Hall Project

In addition, in the area around the construction site you can expect to see:

  • a construction fence that will be installed. It will surround the entire exterior of the building. Heavy construction equipment will also be located on the site and traveling on Second Street
  • the sidewalk on Second Street, directly in front of the current University store site, will be altered to move pedestrian traffic away from the construction site
  • the pedestrian walkway between Luzerne Hall and the current University Store will be accessible for students traveling through that section of campus
  • the sidewalk in front of Lycoming Hall will be open
  • construction job trailers will be located on the south lawn area of Ben Franklin Hall
  • Some hazardous materials will be removed from the interior of the building, but will be removed in a safe manner, in accordance with all appropriate safety regulations

The new project will include the following:

  • Approximately 162,000 square foot; 7 story building
  • Ground floor will house the University Store, food service area and district cooling plant
  • First floor will include campus mail services and integrative learning area
  • First thru sixth floors will include suite style student residences
