Ketchum Hall Interior Stairwell Project

Ketchum Hall will undergo a stair tread replacement project this summer as part of the campus’s critical maintenance work. This undertaking will include removal of existing stair treads, installation of new stair treads and rubber floor tiles at landings, repair of damaged plaster, and painting. The renovation work will be done in two phases to ensure that only one stairwell is closed at a time. Each stairwell will be available for emergency egress only while its renovation work is under way.

Phase 1—renovation of the west stairwell—is scheduled for May 18 through June 5. The work will affect the accessible entrance at the basement level. Individuals who require an accessible route during the renovation work may coordinate access with the Facilities Planning Office. All others are asked to use the east and north building entrances while the west stairwell work is under way.

Phase 2—renovation of the east stairwell—is expected to take place from June 8 through 26. Building occupants are asked to use the west and north building entrances while the east stairwell is being renovated.

Your patience and understanding are appreciated. Questions about this project can be e-mailed to Please refer to the Facilities Planning website for the latest information about current and upcoming construction projects.
