New Student Center: Construction Commences

Great News!!

The construction of the New Student Center at The University of the District of Columbia is getting under way.  The University of the District of Columbia is excited about the New Building and the transformation it will bring to the campus.  Starting on March 21, 2012 (Wednesday) the first phase of construction fencing will be put in place.  This phase will close off the Connecticut Avenue plaza. 

The closing of this area includes:

  • The closing of the front sliding doors from the Connecticut Ave. to Buildings 38/39. The side entrance door to Building 38 stairwell will remain open at this time for entry and exit. 
  • Fencing of the front of all Building 39 and most of Building 38 along Connecticut Ave.
  • The closing of escalators/steps from Level A to the front entrance of Buildings 38/39.
  • A short section of the Van Ness sidewalk on the UDC side will be closed. The other sidewalk on Van Ness will remain open for access to the breezeway and the VNC buildings. 

Due to this transformation, directional signage will be placed on the interior and exterior of Building 38 & 39 to provide alternate pedestrian circulation.

We sincerely appreciate your support and cooperation as we construct the New Student Center.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to join our next Town Hall Meeting on Wednesday April 4th, 2012. An additional notice will be distributed with the meeting location and time.
