The next phase of the Academy Street Dining/Residence Project (ASDR) involves laying a new steam pipe line at THE SOUTH END OF THE ALISON COURTYARD. The work to take approximately 6-8 weeks (into November).
A portion of the courtyard between the Alison buildings will be closed off, along with the entrance closest to Perkins, in the south courtyard area (as indicated in red on the image to the right). To access Alison West from Academy Street, use the new walkway being completed between Alison and 200 Academy, across from the new ISE Lab building.

July 9 – September
Academy Street from Lovett Avenue to Courtney Street will be shut down Tuesday through Thursday, July 9-11, to complete a sewer tie-in for the new Academy Street Dining and Residence Hall (ASDR) project, with periodic shut downs into August. Those wishing to park in the Perkins Garage will need to access the garage from Courtney Street.
Pedestrians and UD employees and visitors will still be able to access the buildings on Academy Street.
June 21 – August 5
From June 21 through approximately August 5 the south end of the parking loop and walkway in front of Alison (area directly across from Perkins) will be closed for steam line work. Access to Alison from Academy Street will only be at the north end of the parking loop. Access from the Green is also limited by new brickwork being laid along the front entrance to Alison Hall West.
The driveway on Academy Street between Alison Hall and the Maintenance/Facilities building has been closed for the summer as work begins on installing a new walkway. This section will be bricked and landscaped to provide an attractive connection between East Campus/ ISE Lab and Alison Hall/the Green.
The good news – Alison Hall has been renovated and reopened!
