Summer 2019 construction

Shannon Shelton Miller May 13, 2019

The University is scheduled to complete major facilities projects this summer that will expand the current campus footprint and equip existing structures with cutting-edge infrastructure and technology.

The renovation of the first and second floors of Roesch Library will be complete by August, and a two-story, 38,192-square foot office building to house the Dayton Foundation, the Dayton Development Coalition and the Fitz Center for Leadership in Community at 1401 S. Main is on schedule for an August move-in date.

The new Center for Cybersecurity and Data Intelligence, which will be housed in a vacated data center on the third floor of Miriam Hall, is targeted for a summer completion date.

Looking ahead, the University of Dayton Arena transformation continues with a scheduled completion date of Oct. 31, and the University will build a new recruiting center for Career Services that will be ready for occupancy in December.

The first phase of the Department of Computer Science’s relocation from Anderson Hall to the Music/Theatre Building will take place from May to July, and the second phase runs from July to December 2020.
