SPRING 2020 SEMESTER KICK-OFF
MAIN CAMPUS RENOVATIONS UPDATE


WELCOME BACK, EAGLES!
We're excited to have you back on campus and to share some important news with you! The latest project in a series of renovations to Kirkwood's main campus is underway. This current project will bring an amazing new student center to campus, but the transition also forces adjustments to all of our day-to-day routines. Don't worry, though – we're here to fill you in on some of the ways campus has changed, and will continue to change throughout the semester.



IOWA HALL IS CLOSED
Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 21, Iowa Hall will be closed for construction. You will not be able to access the building or access connected buildings by way of Iowa Hall. Signs will be posted at each entrance to remind you of the closure. For more on how this might impact your day-to-day, visit kirkwood.edu/renovations


OTHER RELATED CLOSURES
THE CAFÉ
Along with the rest of Iowa Hall, The Café is closed for construction. Operations will continue at the existing Café Mini in Linn Hall and an additional "Grab-and-Go" station is being established at the Bookstore in Benton Hall. Both locations will offer freshly-brewed coffee, pre-made sandwiches, salads, pastries, fruits, veggies, cheese sticks, and other snacks. The Café Mini will also serve hot food specials on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 10:45 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
