Control boards and related hardware in elevators located within both the East Garage and Welcome Center Student Garage will be replaced beginning Tuesday, June 9.
Affected elevators will be shut down in phases as the work takes place. All work is expected to be completed by Tuesday, September 8.
The work on the current control boards, which regulate and direct how the elevator moves and when the doors open and close, are being replaced by EMR Elevator, an outside contractor. The new models, however, will be control boards that the UH Elevator shop can service themselves. To see how specific elevators in each garage will be impacted and when, click the links below:
