The eastern entryway and stairwells of Janse Hall are undergoing construction as part of National University’s ongoing facility upgrades. The project, scheduled for completion in early February, will feature new walls, ceiling and lighting fixtures, new stairway resurfacing and glass-paneled railings.
In addition, the hall area adjacent to the eastern entryway will be updated to create a more comfortable seating and study area for students. The alcove will feature an event-notification flat screen monitor, an extension of the previous seating, and the addition of a countertop with electrical outlets for recharging digital devices.
“The east Janse upgrades are part of an initiative National University has embraced to make common areas more student-friendly,” says Ron Mensching, vice president of business services. “Similar projects have included the new Eagle’s Nest social hub in Janse and expanded collaborative study areas in the university’s Learning Resource Center.”
