Summer renovations on Horseshoe ongoing

Many exterior updates happening on one half of campus center

A number of renovation projects are underway this summer across campus and on the historic Horseshoe, making navigation through central campus a bit trickier.

To cross the Horseshoe going north and south, walk at the ends (McKissick Museum and Sumter Street). To cross it going east to west, head to the Lieber College side (the side closest to the College of Information and Communications).

The work involves replacing the heating and air-conditioning system in Lieber College, which houses the undergraduate admissions office. Work on the 1836 building is expected to be completed during the fall semester.

The rest of the repairs are expected to completed this summer, including a new roof for the McCutchen House, built in 1813 and home to the Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management program's on-campus training restaurant and banquet facility.

Residence halls Harper-Elliott College and DeSaussure College are getting new windows, while Woodrow College is getting a steam pipe replaced.

The steam pipe between Lieber and South Caroliniana also is being replaced, which requires digging across the width of the Horseshoe. The restoration of the Greene Street wall of the Horseshoe also is expected to be be completed this summer.
