A safe, clean, functional and inviting campus is vital for effective teaching and student success. Here are just a few of the recent campus-care projects our team is proud to have completed in support of our university’s mission. Scroll down for updates on major construction projects.



Titan Quad & Promenade

Starbucks Plaza

We're nearing completion of a long list of improvements to Titan Quad and Promenade.

Improvements unveiled so far in 2019 include a modern fire lane; the new Titan Gateway and water features at Nutwood Avenue; Titan Promenade, with decorative pavers, new lighting and landscaping; and, this summer, improvements to the plaza east of the Pollak Library Starbucks, pictured above.

Final touches are now underway at Titan Quad that will minimize hazards and provide more level-ground space for events and gatherings.
