Summer renovations and painting: Benson, Babcock and Winston

Benson University Center

Renovations to the Benson University Center first-floor men’s and women’s restrooms, as well as the first-floor wellness room, began on Tuesday, May 18. Contractors will access the sites via the Benson Center loading dock freight elevator. Expect heavy traffic at times through the post office, and exercise caution when moving through the area.

The first-floor restrooms and wellness room will be unavailable through the end of July 2021, when the project is expected to conclude.

Babcock Residence Hall and Winston Hall

Exterior painting projects are scheduled for Babcock Residence Hall and Winston Hall this summer. Babcock Residence Hall painting began on Tuesday, May 18, and will begin on Winston Hall on Monday, May 24. Pending weather conditions, both projects are expected to conclude by the end of July 2021.

Painters will use scaffolding and ladders along the exterior of the buildings; the campus community should exercise caution around these areas while work is ongoing.
