What's going on at the VU? In short, a TON. The construction of the new Multicultural Center (scheduled for completion next June) has some side effects on how we can all come and go from this busy part of campus.

 

Where do I catch my bus?

The bus stop that used to be right in front of the VU has been moved about 50 yards down to the street towards the PAC; catch your bus there.

 

What’s the status of the AS Bookstore?

The bookstore has moved for the duration of the construction to the VU Multipurpose Room. It can be accessed from High Street (see photo).

 

How do I get into the VU coming from the Old MaIn/Red Square/Wilson Library area?

You will need to cross the street and loop around the construction trailer, and follow the path past vendor’s row into the VU, or come in via the PAC Plaza past the VU Café.

 

What’s happening to Vendor’s Row?

Vendor’s Row is in the process of being relocated from where it is now to a new site on the side of the VU facing High Street; construction is under way on the new location.
