Repairs and upgrades continues on XU’s campus

Here’s an update on some of the construction projects in progress on Xavier’s campus.

These projects will be ready to welcome students back in August. 

Walt Bonvell Garden

Sitting on the academic mall, in between Hinkle and Albers hall, the Walter Bonvell memorial garden is a popular study spot during the warm weather months. 

Regulars to the space will be pleased to know that the back area is being treated to a new set of concrete slabs for more seating areas. 

Brockman Residence Hall, 

The future residents of Xavier’s original residence hall, Brockman, can expect better heating and cooling as the Building’s HVAC equipment is being updated for the fall semester.

Despite this upgrade, there is still no word of a fire alarm system update. 

Heidt Family Champions Center

Construction on the Heidt  Family Champions Center, formerly known as O’Connor Sports Center, is still going along as planned. 

The building will eventually be the home of Xavier Olympic sports, including soccer, swimming, baseball, track and field, as well as cross country. 

Village Apartments Courtyard

Workers are currently redoing the courtyard at the heart of the Village with a brand new lawn and fresh pavement. 

The upgrades leave people wondering what will replace the gazebo, which was prominently placed in the center.
