Campus Construction Updates

October 11, 2019

placeholder Construction is underway on the main campus

Construction is underway on the new STEM facility on the main ARC campus. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by campus construction work and thank you for your patience. We are working hard to mitigate impacts and appreciate your understanding.

As part of underground construction work, walkway access near the Welcome and Support Center building is impacted. Give yourself a little extra time getting around campus.

  • The west entrance to the Welcome and Support Center building (the side facing the Administration building and College Oak Drive) will not be available because of construction throughout the fall semester; the east entrance to the building (the side facing the Student Center) will remain open. The college will be installing signage to help direct foot traffic.
  • In addition, the walkway just south of the Welcome and Support Center - between Counseling/Administration and the Library - will be unavailable throughout the fall semester. Pedestrians will need to use walkways either south of Davies Hall or south of the Fine and Applied Arts area (north of the Welcome and Support Center).

Please make sure to take advantage of the ARC Wayfind tool. ARC Wayfind will help everyone navigate around the new fencing.

Some walkway access on the south side of Davies Hall will be limited because of underground work. Access to the parking lot behind the Learning Resource Center will also be affected.

As a reminder, there will be noise associated with construction work. In addition, trucks will be entering and leaving staff parking lot E during construction. Fencing is in place in staff parking lot E and around the construction zone. The student drop-off location in front of Davies Hall in Lot E is not available because of construction.
