Signs ‘cap’ off new direction

Route 299 signA number of new green “cap and gown” directional signs have been installed throughout New Paltz, making it easier for visitors to find the campus. Facilities Management, especially Assistant Architect Megan Smailer and Director of Facilities Design and Construction John McEnrue, have worked with the State Department of Transportation on the project.

There is a sign at the “T” intersection between Route 299 and the Thruway pointing left to reach the campus. Other signs clearly designate South Putt Corners Road as an Alternate Route and mark the west campus entrance off of Route 208. Old signs have been
moved to more visible locations. The next step – scheduled for spring 2007 – is continuing to improve on-campus signage.

Academic meeting slated

Facilities Management will begin renovations to the Haggerty Administration Building (HAB) basement corridors on Dec. 4. In addition to new flooring, ceiling, lighting, paint and a unified interior signage system, other improvements include an upgraded main basement entrance, a new Mail Services window and public area, and a new information hall. The corridor will be off-limits for extended periods between Dec. 7 and Jan. 20 to ensure that the project is completed in a safe and timely fashion.

A series of alternate route to offices located in the basement have been set up. To access Computer Services, Telecommunications and
Parking, Records and Registration and ID/Meal Plan, enter through the Student Union Building and proceed to basement using the connecting link to the appropriate office.

For access to the Print Shop and Mail Services, enter through loading dock entrance on the north side of HAB. Mail Services will set up a temporary window at this location.

To reach the Hudson Heritage Federal Credit Union, which will be closed Dec. 7-13, use the elevator or enclosed fire staircase located at the Welcome Center on the main lobby floor. For alternate credit union locations and information, call (845) 560- 5607.

All other floors can be accessed through the Welcome Center. For more information or directory assistance, please visit the information desk at the Welcome Center. For questions concerning the construction, contact Garry Nack at x3276.
