Enhancing the Campus Experience Through Summer Renovations

To continually improve the student experience at RVC, many areas of campus will be under renovation from May 20 – Aug. 14, 2024.

The construction will impact some support office locations, building access, and walkways. Before coming to campus during this time, students are encouraged to visit RockValleyCollege.edu/Projects for updates.

Here are some of the projects that will impact your visit to campus this summer:

Woodward Technology Center (WTC). The WTC will be closed from May 20 – Aug. 14, 2024, for HVAC repairs. During this time, faculty and staff will be temporarily moved to other buildings on campus.

Campus Walkways. Throughout the summer, many walkways will be closed for repairs. The walkway between the PEC and SSC will be closed during this time. Visitors to the Stenstrom Student Center (SSC) are strongly encouraged to park in Lots 7 and 8 during this time. In addition, the walkways between JCSM, CLI, and ERC along the creek will also be closed for construction. Please allow extra time to travel between buildings.
