Setzer Center renovation brings changes

Renovation of the Setzer Student Center will begin shortly as the building officially closes today, Monday, Nov. 14.  Adjustments in pedestrian paths and parking are necessary for safety and to provide construction crews access to the site.

The Barnes and Noble Bookstore will remain open throughout the construction and has a new entrance near the Archer Physics building. The entrance inside the SSC is now closed and sealed. Walkway and Parking Map during construction period

Construction activity will affect pedestrian circulation around the Setzer Center and surrounding areas. A construction fence is being erected around the construction site. Except for a designated pedestrian walkway between the Lucas Engineering Building and the Wimberly Student Services Building, all pedestrian traffic will be diverted around the construction fence as shown beginning November 17.

A portion of Lot C-1 will be closed to student, faculty, and staff parking to allow construction vehicle access to the project site. Bookstore deliveries and access to the chemical waste disposal building will be maintained, but no other vehicles will be allowed within the construction fence. The small parking area immediately north of the Setzer Center will be closed to faculty and staff parking.

"We appreciate your flexibility and patience during this important transformation of the Sezter Student Center and will continue to provide updates as work progresses on the project," said Terry Mena, associate vice president and dean of students.
