Classroom 110 Closure at Siemens Hall

On Tuesday evening, while Custodial Staff were preparing the floor of Classroom 110 for waxing, tiles began to pop loose due to the preparation activity.  Due to asbestos surveys on record, we are presuming that there is a likelihood that the floor tile and the mastic contain low levels of asbestos.  Best practices indicate that access only needs to be restricted to the work area. Consequently, the building does not need to be evacuated. 

Campus Events Fields Modulars

Beginning on Monday, August 19th, Facilities Management will be working with contractors to dismantle seven of the modular units on the Campus Events Field. These units have provided the additional space necessary for groups displaced during the seismic retrofit project.

To facilitate the removal of the modular units, the contractors will be using the trucking route access through Wildlife Lane along with the parking area in the same space in order to complete the turn off the field. The road will remain open to through traffic.
