Lincoln/Washington Student Room & Restroom Renovation

In an effort to keep projects progressing on campus during a time when finances are being closely monitored, we have scaled back the project so that it can continue. UHDS is now utilizing the WIU Physical Plant Construction Crew to do all student room and lounge work. Due to the size and scope of the work and to keep the facility operational during the academic year, construction will be done 2 floors at a time. Upon completion of a floor, residents will be asked to move up 2 floors from their existing room. Abatement will also be occurring throughout the year so that we can turn over the building to the contractor for the first bathroom renovation at the end of May. We realize this is an inconvenience to many, but hope that residents will understand as this allows us to continue with the project.
