Capital Projects Update
The Ohio State University continues to navigate the coronavirus (COVID-19) by taking steps to serve the best interests of our students, faculty, staff, patients and visitors. The university has assessed capital projects in an effort to increase financial liquidity until the full impact of COVID-19 is known.
All projects in our pipeline remain important to support our teaching, research and patient care missions. We also recognize the need to be prudent and cautious during these uncertain times. Most construction will continue as planned. However, following an evaluation, projects that can be slowed or modified have been identified.
By taking a measured approach now, the university is best positioned to both respond to the needs of our campus community and to assess an evolving construction market where supplies and labor continue to be in flux.
The Arts District is one project identified to be slowed or modified. Work will continue to complete the School of Music, however, the university will delay construction of the Department of Theatre. We remain committed to completing this project to make 15+HIGH a true epicenter for the arts.
