This week on the campus upgrade project


Data Services


Cabling and fibre work in Grant is on track for completion this week. Some additional cabling work has been identified with completion expected next week. The migration of the Grant building to the upgraded network is planned for February.  


Cabling and fibre work in the Learning & Innovation Centre (LIC) will begin next week and expected completion is by the end of January. The project team, academic scheduling and key stakeholders are working together to minimize disruption to LIC occupants as work progresses. The migration of the LIC Building to the upgraded network is planned for March.

Boathouse and Sneq'wa e'lun (Blue Heron House)

The next buildings on the priority list for cabling and fibre work are the Boathouse and Sneq'wa e'lun.

More details to come in the next crossroads.

University Drive roadwork

Upgrades to campus core services (power, data, water, drainage and lighting) continues throughout the winter, with roadwork at the top of campus until Jan. 15. The second phase of this work begins Jan. 16 at the bottom of University Drive near the Boathouse.  From Jan. 16 to approximately Feb. 12, we anticipate the need for single lane traffic at the bottom of campus near the Boathouse.

To minimize disruption to staff, students and campus visitors, site work will be managed carefully, and flag personnel will be available to manage traffic flow. 

Those travelling to campus for classes and meetings during peak periods are encouraged to plan a few extra minutes into their schedules to allow for the possibility of brief traffic delays. Enjoy some fresh air and plan to park in one of the larger lots on campus (P4 – upper track, P3 – south of the castle, or P7 – adjacent to the Sherman Jen Building) and walk to class or your office!

Safety first!

Construction trucks will be circulating frequently on campus. 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.

To come: Hatley Castle walkways

As part of Royal Roads’ capital initiatives, upgrades to the walkways around Hatley Castle and the Italian Gardens will be restored beginning early February.
