In the News: Construction of Two New Buildings on Troy University’s Campus

construction of two new buildings on Troy University's campus

New seasons mean time for change! Pretty soon, the construction of two new buildings on Troy University’s campus will be changing the landscape for students and faculty alike.

What to expect

Within the coming weeks, construction of two new buildings on Troy University’s campus is set to begin.

While no exact dates have been provided, university officials noted they will let the campus community know as soon as start dates are confirmed.

The two upcoming projects include a new Center for Materials and Manufacturing Sciences (CMMS) building and a new College of Health and Human Services Health Science building.

The CMMS building will be built in the footprint of the former McCartha Hall. As of now, September 2023 is the expected completion date of the project.

The upcoming 60,000-square-foot Health Sciences building will eventually occupy what was once home to both Gardner and Hamil halls.

Parking lot closures

Along with the construction of two new buildings on Troy University’s campus, community members can expect a few temporary changes. For the most part, those changes involve parking areas.

For instance, the parking lot between Shackelford Hall and Wright Hall will be closed along with several parking spots leading into the lot.

However, the nearby Barnes & Noble parking lot will remain unobstructed and open to the public.

Additional parking lot closures include the lot between the Adams Administration building and the McCartha Hall lot. Plus, parking spaces in the first row of the Patterson Hall parking lot will be closed too.

Parking options

But fear not! Additional parking will be made available during the construction of the two new buildings on campus.

For starters, there will be first-come, first-served parking in the gated lot behind Trojan Dining across John M. Long Avenue. Extra handicapped spaces will be provided in the Shackelford Quad as well.

A shuttle service will also begin picking students up at the Trojan Arena parking lot from 7:40 a.m. to 5 p.m. on class days during the construction process.
