Campus Updates 

King Hall has gone offline until Fall 2024 for renovations with a focus on infrastructure and code improvements, such as HVAC and mechanical as well as ADA and fire system improvements. Most faculty and staff from King Hall have been relocated to R modulars (near Dobo Hall) until renovation is complete. After completion, programmatic changes to the second floor will result in reallocated space to accommodate the Honors College & C-SURF. The Film Studies department will return to the first floor, which will also see improvements and new finishes to public spaces. The Advancement Call Center is being relocated to a shared space in Hoggard Hall.
