List of buildings undergoing construction and/or renovations 

Clinton Hall 

Construction is expected to last until mid-2024. Parking lot 7, between Elliott Hall and the RSC, will lose about half of its parking stalls. At times, the whole parking lot may temporarily close. 

In addition, the construction fence will begin in parking lot 7 and lead through campus to Clinton Hall. 

Intensive English Center 

Located right off WSU’s main campus, the center has been relocated to Lindquist Hall and the former building on 17th and Hillside will be demolished by the end of the semester.

Corbin Education Center

The work on the College of Applied Studies home started before the spring semester but is still going on. A chunk of parking lot 5, which is the nearest lot available for students to park at, is off-limits due to construction vehicles and supplies.

Currently, the fountain at the center has been restored and the final aesthetic touches on the building are almost complete. The university expects the project to be done byearly spring semester.
