Oakland Center Update - August 31, 2018

As the Oakland Center expansion project nears completion, visitors are advised to take note of available resources and certain access limitations.

Work continuing both inside and outside the building is expected to continue into October, and both limited and restricted access spaces listed below will become available for campus community use throughout the remainder of the construction process.

Oakland Center visitors are asked to refrain from entering active construction areas, which will be clearly marked and segregated from primary pedestrian traffic areas. Building administrators appreciate the patience and cooperation of the campus community and look forward to full utilization of the many exciting building spaces for years to come.

BUILDING ACCESS
  • Beginning on Tuesday, September 4, all entrances and exits to the building will be open. Travel through the building will be somewhat restricted on Tuesday, however, preventing access to the eastern part of campus.

  • It is anticipated that by Wednesday, September 5, pedestrian traffic will be able to flow freely through the building and along the southern exterior of the building to all buildings east of the Oakland Center.

  • Throughout the remainder of the construction process, visitors are asked to read and abide by posted notices and directions to help with pedestrian traffic flow around the building.

SERVICES
  • All food service operations, the Credit Union, ID Card Operations and the University Bookstore will be open beginning on Tuesday.

  • Two new food service locations will be available: Plum Market Kitchen featuring Zingerman's Coffee, located south of the Pioneer Food Court, and the Market at the Oakland Center, a convenience store similar to the previously offered Grizz Express and located in the southwest corner of the building near the west entrance.
