Current Projects

Campus Gateway and Safety Enhancements

  1. Phase 1 will construct new gateways to the Oxford Campus on both US 27 South and State Route 73 East, and make safety improvements to both roadways.
  2. Phase 2 will include refuge islands, planted medians, safety signals, and reducing the number of crosswalks on High Street betwwen Patterson Avenue and Campus Avenue.

MacCracken, Richard, and Porter Halls Renovations

This project will fully renovate MacCracken and Richard Residence Halls - two co-located residence halls in the Central Quad. The project will also renovate Porter Hall at a level similar to what was recently completed in Clawson. The MacCracken and Richard Hall programs include new sorority suites and an expanded MacCracken Market facility with limited food service. The renovation will include upgrades to systems, finishes and accessibility. Fire protection will be added to MacCracken and Richard, and other safety elements will be enhanced and residence life spaces will be reconfigured.

Pearson Halls Renovations

Pearson Hall, built in 1985, serves the biological sciences including the Departments of Biology and Microbiology. This phased, occupied rehabilitation will renovate teaching and research labs, offices, common areas, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire systems, and circulation spaces. Because the building is occupied, the work is expected to occur over approximately four years.

Swing Hall Reconstruction

This project will deconstruct Swing Hall and restore lawn and landscape to the site, pending future development. 

Demolition documents are complete and the project has accepted a bid. Furniture removal will begin following graduation weekend in May, with abatement and demolition beginning early June.

Maplestreet Commons North

This project will renovate three resturant venues in the northern portion of Maplestreet Station to support buffet dining services. The renovation will provide interior access between existing venues, modification of kitchens and serving lines, and additional dish wash services to support the anticipated increased meal volume.
