Wheelock Student Center Renovation and Expansion
University of Puget Sound will build a two-story, 18,000-sq.-ft. addition onto the southeast end of Wheelock Student Center and make renovations to improve its kitchen, servery, and dining spaces. In addition to expanded kitchen space on the first floor, the addition includes a second floor seating area for 200 and new dining staff offices. The existing servery will be completely remodeled and expanded, greatly enhancing the customer experience and improving traffic flow during busy meal times. The project also includes a passenger elevator and restrooms that will serve the entire building, as well as building-wide fire alarm and sprinkler system upgrades.
Construction schedule. Construction began in May 2013 and is planned to conclude before the beginning of the fall 2014 semester. The kitchen and dining area are scheduled for completion in spring 2014, and the servery will be completed by fall 2014.
Building accessibility. Please note that all areas of Wheelock (including the bookstore, Diversions, The Cellar, the main dining area, and Rotunda) will remain open throughout construction, although there will be intermittent closures of some spaces and entrances.
Parking. The Wheelock parking lot will have reduced capacity until the project is completed, as it will be used for temporary operations and staging during construction. Disabled and Zipcar parking will be available throughout the project. To help reduce congestion in the Wheelock lot during construction, please consider parking in the lot at Alder and N. 18th or another campus lot, or employ alternative commuting methods.
