OFFICE OF ADMINISTRATION PREPARES FOR FALL SEMESTER


Throughout the summer, the Office of Administration is gearing up to welcome back students and prepare for the new academic year. This summer, a team of representatives have prepared a plan of administration milestones to track progress and enhancements to services within parking, dining, facilities maintenance and construction services.

The Office of Administration is hard at work this summer completing major projects such as the opening of the stadium garage, parking lot maintenance and many renovation and construction projects on campus. Facilities Management is currently working on a holistic project that will include a classroom make-ready services and a general campus clean up; this project will include replacing many whiteboards and chalkboards throughout campus, deep classroom cleaning, light bulb replacements and fixture cleaning, painting exterior rails and fencing, and a general campus cleanup and repairs related to fountains, and landscaping – all to be ready for the start of the new academic year. Also, Parking and Transportation is performing parking lot maintenance as well as preparing a new lot at Melcher Hall.

At the new stadium parking garage, the team is getting ready for the opening of customer service areas and retail spaces. The retail spaces will include a Taco Cabana, a Cougar Xpress convenience store and new UH fan shop. Also, construction mobilization is under way for the UC transformation project and mobilization for the next parking garage at lot 1A will soon follow.

“Getting ready for the fall is something that the Office of Administration takes very seriously and works collaboratively on with other departments on campus. From cleaning up the campus to posting additional signage so students feel welcomed and at ease the first day of school. Our students are our priority,” said Maria Honey, Assistant Director of Marketing and Communications for University Services and Residential Life & Housing.
