Titan Quad and Promenade


Construction is now underway on a long list of improvements to the Titan Quad and Promenade, spurred by the need for fire lane improvements that will meet current fire codes. 

While enhancing campus safety, the eye-catching project is designed to give campus visitors the unmistakable sense that they’ve entered Titan Territory.

As work begins on the next phase, watch for changes to the construction fencing effective in January 2019. Click here for a visual detour map around the construction fencing PDF File Opens in new window or this narrative version for screen readers PDF File Opens in new window .
