Construction on Eliza’s, a coffee shop planned for the fourth floor of the Downtown Campus Library, is scheduled to begin Monday, Oct. 31, at midnight. The project is expected to be completed by mid-February.
A construction crew will be working from midnight-9 a.m. Oct. 31 through Thanksgiving break. During this time, half-walls will be installed to separate the coffee area from the rest of the fourth floor.
Students will be able to study on the fourth floor. However, they may experience some noise from construction.
During Thanksgiving break, the crew will work during the day and cut an existing concrete floor so water lines and other needed utilities for the coffee shop may be installed. While students and employees may continue to use the library, it is expected to be noisier than usual on the second and fourth floors, and people may want to use the Evansdale Library or the White Hall computer lab instead.
The WVU community’s patience is appreciated during this project.
