A new luxury student housing complex—complete with a rooftop pool and a yoga studio—will open on the east end of the Delmar Loop just prior to the start of the fall 2017 semester.
Washington University announced plans to add the James S. McKelvey, Sr. Hall, which will house the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, to the planned East End expansion of Danforth Campus on Friday.
Seven new individual projects will soon take root on the East End of campus, and administrators are highlighting the connectedness of the largest expansion the Danforth Campus has ever seen.
Student will see dramatic changes to the University’s parking policy should a proposed system be implemented for the 2017-2018 school year.
Due to complications in the excavation phase of the project, the Olin Library expansion will be extended an entire semester and is on track to be finished for the spring 2018 semester.
Starting Monday, April 25, and running for 12 days, the intersection of Delmar and Skinker Boulevard will be closed to allow construction crews to install the tracks for the New Loop Trolley. Loop traffic will be rerouted to Forest Park Parkway and Big Bend Boulevard as the streets have similar capacity to Delmar.
Construction is underway in the Danforth University Center to develop a new office for the vice chancellor for students, Lori White, and to create additional study spaces available to students and the Career Center.
Washington University has stepped up renovations of engineering building Jolley Hall, which will lead to restricted access to the building until May 2016.
Earlier this fall, drivers across campus were hit with another parking pass price hike—and the increases aren’t expected to stop any time soon.
The University intends to do this by adding two new academic buildings, Jubel Hall and Weil Hall, as well as green spaces, an underground parking garage and two glass buildings: a designated welcome center for admissions and a building the administration has tentatively titled “The Hub,” which is slated to feature dining spaces, showers, changing rooms and academic programming.
