Progress on the University Center: More of Your Questions Answered

Dear Adelphi community:

I’m sure the holiday season and a generous winter break are welcome thoughts for many of our community members as we wrap up our fall semester.

Our project team continues compiling and working to answer the many questions that have been submitted by you about the Ruth S. Harley University Center renovation—an important project that will provide our community with a vibrant hub for campus life with double our current dining space, much-needed additional meeting and study space, and an improved art gallery. You can read our latest answers to your questions here and keep checking back for updates and communications about the project at

You’ll recall from my last update that the major work on this important project will begin after Commencement on May 19, 2019, and I continue to welcome your questions and feedback.

As this will be my last regular update of 2018 about the UC project, I would like to thank you all for your input and partnership to date, and wish you the happiest of holidays and a wonderful winter break.

See you in the New Year!
