Facilities Development & Operations
Hours of operation for the first two weeks of the semester are:
Monday-Thursday: 8:00am to 12:00pm & 1:00pm to 6:00pm
FD&O has moved the key pick up function to the front reception desk (1st floor entrance, 9th & San Fernando; near Boyce Gate). In addition to a new location, we have implemented extended hours for the first two weeks of the new semester. Faculty, staff and students may pick-up keys and drop-off key requests at this new location.
Construction is in the final stage and faculty will be moving in as scheduled. The newly renovated SPX building features a new dance studio, located over the breezeway closest to 4th street, new offices for kinesiology and health science and recreation departments, a new entrance into the building on both the north and the south sides, and a new locker room facility. This project upgraded the seismic design and MEP systems as well as combined SPX Central and East into one comprehensive building.
Student Recreation and Aquatic Center (SRAC)
The Student Recreation & Aquatic Center (SRAC) is in the preliminary design stage. The construction start date is scheduled for summer of 2016, with an expected project completion date of fall 2018.
Work continues on the Student Union. We look forward to a new Starbucks, Subway and the Spartan Bookstore later in the fall semester.
