1. The Lipton Hall roof, located on the second floor in the rear of the building, will be replaced. Construction is planned between June 15, 2016 and August 15, 2016. The project will be somewhat noisy at times, primarily during the demolition stage. We also anticipate that there will be unpleasant odors during installation, and we encourage residents and office staff in the rear of the building to leave windows closed during the day.
The contractors will work Monday – Friday, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. At this time, we do not anticipate any work on Saturday.
2. Minor renovations in offices on the second floor will commence following graduation. Work will be done in stages including removing and adding walls and doors. There will be noise during the demolition stage and while constructing new walls using hammers and electric tools. We will do our best to keep noise at a minimum.
3. The carpets in every apartment are professionally steam cleaned once a year and the kitchen floors are machine cleaned. Residents will be notified in advance about this summer project.

We are excited to announce that Mercer Residence Hall will be undergoing the installation of sprinklers in all bedrooms and kitchens this summer. To accomplish this monumental task, Mercer Residence Hall will be closed to all residents immediately following the completion of the 2016 Spring Semester. Due to the tight timeline of the project, we cannot offer any license extensions.
