VP&S Bldg.: Elevator Modernization Project Begins Oct. 3

September 29, 2022

In a continued effort to upgrade our facilities to support your daily research, academic and administrative activities, we will be conducting elevator upgrades in the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons Building in a series of phases. Beginning on Monday, October 3, 2022, we will begin phase one, in which elevator car #13 in the VP&S Building will be temporarily unavailable and will remain out of service through approximately Friday, February 3, 2023.

Highlights of What to Expect:

  • During this time, please use the adjacent passenger cars for elevator service. 
  • While we conduct elevator upgrades, please expect longer than usual delays for passenger service. Please consider using the stairwells when possible to alleviate extra traffic and allow accessibility access to the remaining elevators.

Once this multi-phase project is complete, occupants and visitors will see major upgrades to the building’s elevator infrastructure and new interior cab designs. For additional information about this project, including ongoing status updates, visit the project webpage.
