The University Services Campus has been rapidly developing over the past couple of years, which we are excited to have been and continue to be a part of. Looking back on 2018, there have been several departments that have joined in occupying this area. Earlier in the year, Automotive Services relocated to their new, larger facility. The new garage provides more space for automotive repairs, as well as its own customer service area that used to live in the center of the shop. Over the summer, the Human Resources Administration Building and Employee Resource Center moved into their permanent homes at the center of the Services Campus. The Administration Building consists of departments like Payroll and Benefits, while the Resource Center hosts trainings for campus employees that fall under Learning and Development.
Toward the end of the year, OIT Operations completed their move from main campus. As we approach the new year, there are more exciting moves and developments underway. In March, Environmental Health and Safety is slated to move into their new space at Cottage 7 next to OIT. Closer to the summer, Cottage 3 will be occupied by the final departments of Procurement Services to move to the Services Campus. Contract Administration, Furnishings and Design, and the Upholstery Shop will all be under one roof. This is the first time that F&D and the Upholstery Shop have ever been in the same building. Cottages 1 and 4 are still in the planning phases for the University Architects and Construction Administration to complete the campus. 2018 was a great year and 2019 is going to bring even more life to the University Services Campus.
