Bone Student Center Lobby Construction Begins – News

Demolition of the Bone Student Center (BSC) first floor lobby began on May 28. The work will include the entire first floor lobby, the Braden ticket office, the lobby shop, the Academic Program Council office and the Print Services satellite location. During demolition, there will be no access to spaces throughout the summer, including many meeting rooms on the first floor.

There will be no access to the stairs and elevator to the first floor (center) lobby throughout the summer. The second and third floors of the BSC will remain accessible throughout the summer using the stairs and elevator on the east side of the building. For events held inside the Brown Ballroom, guests must enter from the west side of the BSC.

The Braden Box Office moved to a new location on the east side of the first floor at the reception desk. The Landing will open June 3 and is located at the east end of the first-level lobby, next to Starbucks and across from Barnes and Noble at Illinois State University.

While the lobby is being built, restrooms between Starbucks and The Landing will remain available, as well as restrooms on the second floor (east side) and third floor. Access to restrooms on the west side of the first and second floors will vary, but signage will be posted.
