Campus progress update


Castle first floor refresh

Over the holiday period through to mid-January, Campus Operations will be taking advantage of a quieter time in the campus event schedule to refresh some areas of the first floor of the castle, concentrating on the Drawing Room, Lounge and Meeting Room 121. These spaces will be unavailable for bookings from December 20 to January 17, 2020. During this time expect to see contractors working in the building under RRU supervision. We appreciate your patience during this exciting refresh.

Should you have any questions, feel free to contact Caroline Aked.

Life Safety Equipment Testing

From December 16 to December 20 annual Life Safety Equipment Testing will be taking place across campus. Notifications have been sent to campus users.

Learning & Teaching Auditorium

Traffic around the area in front of the LTA on West College Drive has been temporarily re-routed to allow room for construction vehicles and activity on the site. A short detour through the Sherman Jen parking lot is being managed by flaggers for the next three months. Safety first: please go slow in this area.


Large construction vehicles continue to travel along West Campus Road carrying heavy loads. Safety first: please obey the 10 km speed limit; traffic management will be assisted by flaggers as needed.


Due to the increased construction activity in and around the LTA, parking is being monitored and managed closely. Please use designated parking areas and take advantage of the new additional parking below P7 (southeast of the Sherman Jen Building).

Data Services

The Boat House and Sneq’wa e’lun will be connected to the new data services infrastructure on December 20.

Cabling work on the Nixon third and Millward fifth floors is in progress. Please stay tuned for further updates.   

Safety first!

All staff, students and visitors to campus are reminded to obey traffic rerouting indications and posted speed limits and watch for flag people directing traffic.

Safe driving on campus is essential to everyone’s wellbeing.
