Update: Bishop Hall Reconstruction - Walkway Closure

This is an update to the related Daily Bulletin notice of June 26, 2017.

The Bishop Hall Renovation – Residence Hall Conversion project will begin Friday, August 4, with the installation of site fencing around Bishop Hall. During the initial phase of the project, which is expected to last from August 4 to November 1, the east-west walkway north of Bishop Hall (between Bishop Hall and the Campbell Student Union) will be closed to allow for the replacement of water and sewer lines. Pedestrian access to Cleveland Hall will be available through the Campbell Student Union or via the east-west walkway south of Bishop Hall (campus map, PDF, 3 MB).

The converted Bishop Hall will house about 200 Buffalo State students in a traditional doubles corridor-style setting. A new main entrance on the south side will provide an updated identity for the building. Amenity spaces will be distributed throughout. The renovation will include new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems; architectural improvements; and safety-related enhancements. Bathrooms will be reconfigured, and new finishes will be added throughout the building. Occupancy is expected to begin in fall 2018.

Please visit the Facilities Planning website for additional information about this and other construction projects on campus.
