6/4/2013 —

The Office of Business Services at Penn State DuBois would like all students, visitors, faculty, and staff members that will be on campus this summer to be aware of some renovations taking place.  The renovation projects may cause temporary changes in the flow of foot traffic around campus and the accessibility of certain building entrances and parking areas. 


The outdoor staircase on the Swift Building, nearest to the DEF Building and Event Lawn, is currently being replaced.  The adjacent entrances to each building have been closed, and will remain closed for the duration of the project.


Work will soon begin to replace the retaining walls along the loading dock at the rear of the Hiller Building.  During this project, the parking lot at the rear of Hiller, along Sixth Street, will be closed. 


A new roof will be installed on the Smeal Building this summer, which will require the closure of one of the building entrances.


Various sidewalk replacements throughout campus are planned, as well.


Project completion dates and other details are not finalized at this time.  Updates will be announced as that information is made available. All work is expected to be completed before the beginning of the Fall Semester. These projects have been made possible by funding from University Park.
