Impact of Summer Renovations: Offline vs. Partial Offline

Summer residential college Renovations fall under one of three levels of work:

Offline Renovation:

Every five years a college will go fully offline for the duration of the summer to undergo comprehensive renovation to interior, exterior, and infrastructure as required.

Partial Offline Renovation:

Dependent upon extent of work needed, a college may partially close for the summer to complete intervention work. These colleges would be available for partial utilization by summer programs.

Online Minor Refurbishment:

Based on need and requests, colleges may undergo minor “touch up” work, including painting and minor repairs. Colleges undergoing this type of work remain open and summer programs are not impacted.
