Dormitories: Quad Rehabilitation Project
Project Update as of October 21, 2019
This summer the contractor completed the second phase of work which included new accessible pathways in the courtyard leading from Outback and the Fort Awesome area to the Main Dining Hall, as well as to the Main Plaza level.
New additions this summer include; new landscaping, a performance area with pergola and seating, a meditation garden, new lighting, blue-light phone, formal patio for events, rain gardens, new seating and bike area in front of Outback, and restored open play areas.
The contractor will be finishing up their punch list work over the next few weeks.
The ‘Quad” as it is referred to is, the courtyard located on the inside of the u-shaped residence hall (Big Haus, Crossroads, and Farside) and between the Outback residence hall located to the south. The campus’ Main Dining Hall also resides here. The courtyard is in a state of disrepair, with the majority of its sidewalks and pathways in a deteriorated and unsafe condition. Site drainage is a constant issue and overall site lighting is poor, adding to safety issues at night. This project will correct these issues, provide new accessible pathways between the residence halls and the Main Dining Hall, and create a safe environment for our students to enjoy and interact.
This project will correct these issues and removal all accessible barriers between the buildings and the Main Dining Hall.
