Crimson-colored cranes tower over Vandenberg Hall and bright yellow construction tape decorates the campus. Oakland University’s latest construction projects are underway.

The current visible buildings above ground are the new engineering facility, located near Kresge Library, and the housing complex, located near Vandenberg Hall.

Four other projects are being worked upon as well, including a new parking structure (see next page for more details on the parking plan for fall, 2013,) a grounds and facilities management building, a recreation complex and a carillon tower, although not all of them are visible yet.

 “All of the projects are proceeding as planned,” said associate vice president of facilities management, Terry Stollsteimer. “Even at times when it looks like nothing is happening, believe me, things are happening,”

All of the projects are scheduled to be completed in fall, 2014.
