The University Center Circle, which has been closed for construction throughout the summer, will re-open to vehicular traffic on Thursday, Aug. 22.

Pedestrian access to the University Center from the circle will be available through a covered walkway and a newly-constructed accessible ramp at the south entrance.

Additionally, the original southwest ramp behind the food trucks is tentatively scheduled to close on Tuesday, Aug. 27, and will remain closed throughout the fall semester. The newly-constructed exterior stair between the University Center and the M.D. Anderson Library will become available for exiting only from the UC second floor.

The northwest ramp to the back of University Center will remain open through December.
