Construction Activity Between Student Center and Smithgall Continues Into Spring

The alternate pathway in place around the Smithgall Student Services building will remain in place as construction work between the Smithgall and the Student Center site stretches into the new semester. The necessary work, once hoped to last only a few weeks, has proved more complex and will require more time to complete and restore the pathway. 

Campus Center Renovations Continue December 2021 through January 2022

While the fence line has been static for some time, this notice documents a brief change to execute hardscape work from Ferst Plaza down to the parking lot.  The work has been scheduled to avoid events in the Ferst Theater and at a time when campus is fairly quiet to minimize the disruption. 


*Student Center Lot 2 and Student Center parking deck remain open for public use.

*Normal working hours are Monday - Saturday 6:00 AM – 6:00 PM.
