Highlights of Summer Construction

Renovations to the A and B Complex courtyards included replacement of underground water mains that were more than 40 years old, as well as new sidewalks and attractive new landscaping. In addition, a new stairway was constructed from B Complex to the University Commons. The courtyards of the other complexes were renovated in previous years.

Facelifts for A, B, C, and D Complexes:

A through D Complexes received facelifts, including new front entrances featuring glass doors surrounded by windows.The lobbies of each of the residence halls in the four complexes also got new paint, lighting upgrades, floor tile repairs, and other renovations to create inviting new entrances.

The Konover Great Room was renovated, including new paint, lighting, flooring, and a new entrance door. In addition, the Konover roof was replaced.

The Fuller Music Center now has new flooring throughout its main hallways, which improves sound absorption, a new paint scheme designed to coordinate throughout the building but with a distinct palette for each floor, and other aesthetic and functional enhancements that support student, faculty, and staff needs. The work was completed with assistance from the Office of the Provost (new ceilings and lighting), the Facilities Department (new HVAC system), and a donation from a friend of The Hartt School (interior design work).

The 1877 Club kitchen was modernized with new appliances and other upgrades, and the service elevator was replaced.
