We're updating the hub of residential life in TU's campus core.

The Glen Towers are undergoing renovations to update utility infrastructure, replace exterior facades and restore the Glen Plaza. We're reinvesting in the future of residential life in the campus core. The project includes:

  • Updating heating and air conditioning systems
  • Completely renovating the buildings' exteriors, including replacing windows and adding terracotta rainscreen systems
  • Repairing and replacing exterior storm drains and sanitary lines
  • Creating an ADA-accessible pathway from Cross Campus Drive to the Glen Towers and Glen Dining Hall

Timeline

The project began in summer 2021 with the renovation of Tower C. Each renovation will take approximately one year and will be carried out consecutively to maximize housing availability. Following Tower C’s re-opening in summer 2022, we will renovate Towers B, A and D. We expect renovations to be complete by summer 2025.

Impacts

Pedestrian routes will be available between the Towers and Cross Campus Drive, the Glen pedestrian bridge, and Glen Dining. The circular driveway adjacent to Cross Campus is closed for equipment and staging. Drivers should use the parking lanes on Cross Campus for short-term drop-offs and pick-ups. Follow posted detour signs.

Construction will occur between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. When Saturday work is necessary, it will be limited to the hours between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
