Walkway and tunnel

Why isn’t there a covered walkway between Wittson and University Tower?

A walkway is not scheduled to be installed until this fall due to equipment traffic from adjacent projects. We have a project addressing improper drainage and water leaks into University Tower Unit 3. Additionally, we are currently replacing the University Tower Unit 4 roof. This traffic path is the only way to get equipment to these jobs.

Is the tunnel open from the 2nd floor of University Tower all the way to Bennett Hall? I thought there was a closed door that restricted access.

Yes, this tunnel will remain open for it is an alternate route mentioned above. From Lied to Bennett, there is badge access required. See maps above for more information.

  • The covered walkway is imperative. Expensive medical equipment, like the rheumatology ultrasound machine, is being transported between Wittson Hall and the DOC and is exposed to the elements. Not to mention patients and staff.

    • Lucie, my apologies for excluding the tunnel information. I have added it to this post and included in this reply:
