Facilities & Services November 2022 Announcements

Construction Highlights

WUIS Building - Restroom Renovation

Say good-bye to the old flooring and toilet stools in the restrooms of the WUIS building! A combination of F&S crews and external contractors are replacing the floors and stool fixtures, as well as patching and painting the walls. Material shortages and unexpected conditions have forced changes to the scope of work, which in turn have caused delays, but the final outcome will be a nice improvement.

WUIS Restrooms Closed Nov. 7-17

11.13.22 Update

Facilities and Services has encountered an unforeseen issue with the flooring installation at WUIS. The condition of the subfloor requires extensive grinding to prepare it for the installation of the new flooring. This is a very time-consuming process that we anticipate will push the reopening of the restrooms to the middle of next week, November 16 or 17.

We apologize for the continued inconvenience, and every effort will be made to reopen the restrooms as quickly as possible.
