During the summer months, there was a flurry of construction activity on the CSUCI campus. Among the many projects were renovations that increased capacity and options in the Dining Commons; The Cove Bookstore—the University’s bookstore—was relocated to the Town Center; the University’s Disability Accommodation Services moved into the space in the Bell Tower that formerly was occupied by the bookstore; and the completion of a new surface parking lot created 300 additional parking spaces on campus.
Many of the projects under construction this summer were completed before classes resumed in late August. Other projects, like the John Spoor Broome Library, will be completed in 2008. The University’s area of Operations, Planning & Construction (OPC) has provided details about the following campus projects.

The 140,000 square foot Broome Library continues to move forward on schedule and will open to the public in time for the spring 2008 semester in January. This new digital teaching library will provide large bookstack spaces designed to accommodate all current and future publications, reading rooms, study areas, computer labs, a café, and a grand reading room. The front plaza includes a large water feature and vistas overlooking the main campus mall to the west. The east side of the library features a bridge to the University Glen Town Center and will provide direct library access to the neighboring residential community.
