Campus progress update


University Drive roadwork: thank you

Minor work continues at the south end of campus. We do not anticipate any significant traffic disruptions along University Drive moving forward. We appreciate the support of all campus users as we continue to improve core campus services (data, power, water, drainage and lighting).

Upcoming campus power outage 

Building on improvements started in 2017, Royal Roads is moving forward with further upgrades to campus electrical systems. We originally anticipated a series of four power outages to undertake this work; however, the project team has been able to focus requirements into just two outages. Working carefully with key campus stakeholders, Saturday, September 7 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. has been confirmed for the last outage required to complete current upgrades.

We will be notifying campus users on Crossroads of how you can help and what you can expect in anticipation of the outage closer to the date. Stay tuned!

Learning and Teaching Auditorium and West Campus infrastructure upgrades

Next week construction activity will increase in the West Campus area as work continues on the LTA. Please alert Sherman Jen and Rec Centre visitors and students that there will be intermittent noise during LTA construction.

While work is primarily focused on the southeast corner of the LTA building and surrounding area, construction vehicles will be travelling down West Campus Road. For the safety of all campus users, the speed on West Campus Road has been decreased to 10 km. Signs have been posted and flaggers will be in place to manage traffic.


Parking infrastructure 

The southeast corner of P7 has been temporarily closed to facilitate construction vehicles while drainage work is completed below P7. The area should be open by August 26. Additional parking continues to be available below P7.

Safety first

All staff, students and visitors to campus are reminded to obey the posted speed limits and watch for flag people who may be directing traffic.

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