Campus Construction

The following is intended for informational purposes only. Dates and times of campus construction are subject to change without notice. This page will be updated as projects progress.


CUNY has allocated funds to update the fire alarm and security systems for all college buildings. Work is under way.

Hillel Gate

The Hillel Gate entrance to the campus, at Campus Road and Hillel Place, has been replaced with a temporary entrance approximately 50 yards further down Campus Road, immediately after the children's playground by Whitehead Hall. The new Hillel Gate will open in 2014, when construction of the Leonard & Claire Tow Center for the Performing Arts is completed.

Ingersoll Hall Extension

Interior renovations are being made as we upgrade the science facilities, including a suite of new rooms and laboratories for chemistry and biology in addition to support space.

James Hall

Repairs to the building's roof have made it necessary to place a scaffold at two of the building entrances. In addition, entrances from other sides of the building — including the one on Campus Road will be turned into fire exits. The work should be completed by fall 2013.

Leonard & Claire Tow Center for the Performing Arts

The demolition of the old Gershwin Hall has been completed. The project is on track for a fall 2014 opening. A new Hillel Gate will open after construction of center is completed.

Roosevelt Science Teaching Commons

Preliminary designs will be completed in October.

Student Center

The project to replace the existing electrical service will be completed by fall 2013.

Whitman Hall

Repairs to the façade are almost complete.
