UC Games Room closes until January 2014

The University Center Games Room closed on Wednesday to help facilitate the renovations to the UC and will remain closed until Phase One of the transformation project is complete in January 2014.

The main staircase in the UC Arbor that currently connects the three levels of the UC needs to be taken down to complete the first phase of renovations, a press release said. All occupants of the ground level will need to vacate for the building to remain in compliance with the Texas fire code.

At the end of Phase One, the entire ground level will be available to students. The game room will reopen at that time.

Additionally, the UH Forensics Society will begin relocating to room 102 in the Oberholtzer Hall today and will continue the transition until Dec. 7, the release said.

UC ground floor services such as the TV lounge, public microwave, computer kiosk, lactation center and restrooms will no longer be available to students, the release said.

Students seeking other locations for evening hang-outs are encouraged to utilize the 24-hour lounge in the M.D. Anderson Memorial Library.
