ALBANY, N.Y. (August 31, 2016) – What changes in the physical appearance of the campus do you notice this fall?

  • Construction continues on the 55,000-square-foot West addition, where a 400-seat auditorium is rising. Expected to be completed in phases during the spring semester, the project involves not only the new space, but also renovation to more than 46,000-square-feet of the existing Campus Center.
  • Onondaga Hall, a low-rise residence hall on Indian Quad, has been renovated.
  • 518 Market is reopening after being closed for summer.
  • The kosher kitchen has moved from Dutch Quad to the Indian Quad dining room.
  • More information on hours of operation for Campus Center venues is available.
  • A SEFCU ATM has been added to the East addition of the Campus Center, between Cusato’s pizza and the Fountain Grill. Access to the SEFCU branch on the west side is from the Science Library.
  • On Colonial Quad, Herkimer Hall is under renovation this fall and spring. Colonial and Dutch will house second-year students.
  • The Performing Arts Center Main Theatre has been refreshed with new seating, carpets and other enhancements.
  • The former Health Center (Building 25) is being renovated. Once completed, in summer 2017, the departments of Africana Studies and Economics will move in. Designed as a classrooms and departmental offices building, the project will include upgrades to paths and road crossing so that pedestrians can have a more pleasant, accessible path between Building 25 and the Podium.
  • There is also storm water work continuing next to the Massry Business Building.
  • The Downtown Café has been changed to Zime at Downtown Campus.
  • A Campus Center FAQ is available from University Auxiliary Services.
