St. Paul's Chapel Roof Replacement & Exterior Restoration

Facilities and Operations is embarking on a project to replace the roof and restore the exterior of St. Paul's Chapel. This work is critical to preventing any future damage to the interior of the building.

Beginning November 10, we are changing out the scaffolding around the Chapel. While scaffolding is replaced, we will close one walkway at a time to allow this work to proceed.

Tuesday, November 21, the Chapel Gate will also be temporarily closed to pedestrian traffic. We anticipate the Chapel Gate will reopen on November 30.

Summer 2017 Construction Recap

Every summer, while many students and faculty enjoy a well-earned summer respite, Facilities and Operations takes the time to complete construction projects, large and small, that can only take place when students are away. These include residence hall renovations and outdoor projects that require warmer weather. Other construction projects are performed during the summer to take advantage of the smaller impact on the decreased campus population.

The summer of 2017 was no exception, with many projects taking place from the Morningside campus up to the Baker Athletics Complex.

Butler Plaza and Lawn Restoration Project

During the summer of 2017, Facilities and Operations initiated a restoration project of Butler Lawn and Butler Plaza, the area directly in front of Butler Library. The project replaces steps and temporary metal ramps from the east and west approaches to the library’s main entrance with permanent, accessible entryways, and will be restored with new features consistent with the campus's overall architecture and landscaping plan.
