The Science Complex on the Loyola Campus is on schedule, and is slated to open in September 2003.

At the Sir George Williams Campus downtown, excavation has been going on all summer for the Integrated Engineering, Computer Science and Visual Arts Complex, on Ste. Catherine St. between Guy and Mackay Sts.

The design phase is coming to a satisfactory end for the new quarters of the John Molson School of Business, on Guy St. between Ste. Catherine and de Maisonneuve Blvd. Excavation is expected to start in 2003.

J.W. McConnell Building (LB): Tim Horton’s is being renovated by the new food services provider, Chartwells. The copy centre that was located on the main floor of the Hall Building has moved to the McConnell Building main floor. This brings printing and copying together in proximity to the Bookstore and R. Howard Webster Library. A quick food service is available on the terrace until the snow flies.

Hall Building (HB): The fourth-floor Tim Horton’s counter has been revamped. The food court on the mezzanine and the Concordia Student Union multi-cultural kitchen are under negotiation, and will stay as they are for now.

New classrooms: During this construction period, Concordia continues to rely on some rented space on the downtown campus. Rooms will be rented on the two upper floors of the new Jean Coutu building (CL) at the corner of Ste. Catherine and St. Mathieu Sts. Continuing Education will occupy the third floor, and Registrar’s will use the second floor for unassigned classrooms.

Dean of Students (AD): At Loyola, the most important summer renovation is the consolidation of the Dean of Students Office. These renovations will offer centralized, improved facilities for students by bringing together the Dean of Students, Advocacy and Support Services, Campus Ministry, Health Services, and Counselling and Development on the ground floor of the Administration (AD) Building. A new Instructional and Information Technology Services (IITS) centralized service counter will be available in the Central Building.

Residence changes: The common rooms and kitchen of the student residence on the Loyola Campus have been renovated.

Campus Centre: The food services space at Loyola renovated by the new provider, Chartwells, will be inaugurated on Sept. 16.
