We serve in the Planning, Design and Construction of great physical campus spaces for education, healthcare, and the community. We ensure the long-term viability of the University through long-range planning, renovation and new construction, stewardship of natural resources, and community outreach.
The PDC staff displays their commitment to the success of this mission by providing excellent customer service to all, engaging in open and transparent communication, ensuring our team members and the community receive necessary education, and fostering team satisfaction.
We want to share the work that we’re doing, and the impact it has on the everyday lives of students, faculty, staff, and visitors. To see an up-to-date view of all the construction projects on campus, please refer to the interactive Construction Impacts Map. For a more detailed look at some of the projects impacting campus, please refer to the @theU Construction and Commuter Updates or the Projects section of our website.

Hosting an Event on Campus?
If you are hosting an event on campus, big or small, please fill out the following permits:
A Temporary Use Permit (TUP) is issued to anyone utilizing a space or facility for purposes other than what has been approved by the Building Fire Official for its established use.
A Temporary Structure Permit is issued to anyone setting up a non-permanent structure(s) or equipment on campus such as a stage, climbing wall, tents, powered equipment, fencing, lighting, bleachers, food handling equipment, tables, seating, etc.
Capital Facilities and Remodeling
As you may know, the University provides a small amount of annual funding for capital facilities and remodeling to help colleges and departments address urgent renovation and accessibility improvement needs. The maximum grant amount is $150K, and departments are required to match any grant funding they receive. Requests are typically received in January, and departments are notified in May as to whether funds will be available for their projects on July 1.
While this effort has provided funding for many important projects, the initiative has become challenging to administer and less impactful than we had hoped, for many reasons. As a result, we believe it’s time to pause and reevaluate the process and goals, in order to assure that the funding is reaching the projects with the greatest need.
The Capital Facilities and Remodeling initiative, therefore, will be paused for the FY21 fiscal year, and no funding will be made available. We will be back with a new program for the FY22 year. We thank you for your patience, and welcome your feedback, which can be directed to Rochelle Randazzo, Director for Finance & Accounting (firstname.lastname@example.org).
How Capital Facilities and Remodeling Funds Are Used
The Capital Facilities and Remodeling funds are allocated annually for general departmental, research, accessibility, remodels, etc. Funding is used to assist colleges and departments to meet physical environmental changes in their programmatic needs.
