York Campus Improvements Await Students in Fall

YORK COLLEGE–When the COVID-19 pandemic ushered many York faculty, staff and students to their homes for mostly remote operations, construction projects both ongoing and new, continued to progress on campus.

Almost a year ago, the York College campus was undergoing the removal and replacement of a stairway, six escalators and a few elevators in the Academic Core Building. According to a report released in January from the Office of Facilities and Planning at York College, the replacement work on those structures is at 90 percent completion. According to the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York, (DASNY), the replacements come with a cost of $14.7 million.
