STEM Construction ImpactsConstruction for the new Sobrato Campus for Discovery and Innovation (SCDI) has begun. A fence has been installed around the site and safe, alternative paths of travel have been added. Plan on giving yourself extra time to get around campus. Signs are being posted to help direct pedestrians around the site. For a map depicting the fence line and available paths of travel, please view the SCDI Construction Map.As of late January, the existing buildings located on the SCDI site have been prepared for demolition and are ready to be safely removed from campus. The noise associated with the demolition is expected to be present for approximately six weeks after demolition begins on Monday, February 4th. While some disruption is expected, efforts are planned to keep the sound and dust to a minimum. People near the engineering complex can expect to hear various truck backup alarms, excavators with various attachments such as hammers, crunchers, crackers and loading trucks with buckets. In addition to the noise, those in adjacent buildings can expect to feel small and intermittent vibrations transmitted through the earth. A few days after start of demolition effort, dump trucks will begin hauling debris off site. The trucks will exit campus on Sherman Street and pass down Benton Street, The demolition team will employ misters and additional water will be used to control dust, but some amount is possible near the site.
The Finn Residence Hall construction continues with the completion of the building slated for Summer 2019. This new residence hall will house ~360 students in mini-suite style rooms. Check out the project page for a live camera of the progress.

The Stephen C. and Patricia A. Schott Athletic Excellence Center will be built adjacent to the Leavey Center and the Degheri Tennis Center. The 50,000 square foot, two-story Athletic Excellence Center will provide dedicated space for SCU’s Division I student-athletes to work out, train, practice, eat, and study together.

Facilities Visitor Parking Change
All visitors are required to check into the Facilities building in order to obtain a daily parking pass. Visitors must park in spaces marked as Visitor or 1-Hour Contractor. If all parking spaces of these two types are filled, a visitor can park in the spots labeled "C", as long as they have a visitors pass displayed. Parking passes are good for the day it is given. If a visitor wishes to park in the lot for several days, a pass must be acquired for each day they plan on parking.
