Subway, convenience store construction continues

Opening expected by early October

The fall semester will bring a bigger Subway shop and a new convenience store to Hearn Plaza in the space where Wells Fargo and a smaller Subway operated until this summer.

The Subway and adjacent store are expected to open in early October. The renovation is taking place in Davis Residence Hall on Hearn Plaza.

Offering indoor seating, the Subway and store will be open around the clock, seven days a week. The 24-hour schedule evolved out of student requests for such service.

Shorty’s in Benson University Center will be open 24 hours a day until Subway and the store begin operating. At that point, Shorty’s will move to a different schedule.

The late-night Shorty’s menu features Old Gold Swipes options and late-night breakfast and burger selections. The Old Gold Swipes meal plan offers options to dine at several campus dining locations.

In addition, the Benson food court has extended its hours until midnight, while Subway construction is underway. Open until midnight are Chick-Fil-A, Moe’s, Take 2 and Forest Greens. The food court will have a new schedule once Subway and the store open.
