Work starts to prepare Witte for construction
Beginning this month, some site preparation work will be done outside Witte Residence Hall to get ready for summer construction. This will include excavation work, fencing, tree removals, and closing of all of the Witte backyard spaces. Construction hours will be limited to minimize impact on residents, and work will be restricted during finals week and move-out. Witte, which opened in 1964, is a two-tower structure that is home to 1,150 residents in double rooms. University Housing is planning a major renovation to this building over a two-year span to address mechanical issues, improve the resident spaces and upgrade the facilities.
