Dickey Hall Elevator Outage Update

posted in: Home Page, Newsletter | 0

A summer project to upgrade the Dickey Hall elevator is extending past the anticipated completion date. The UK College of Education is reaching out to students, faculty and staff to develop solutions for any issues this may cause during the Fall 2018 semester.

If you are unable to access the upper floors in Dickey Hall due to the elevator outage, please contact the Disability Resource Center at (859) 257-2754 or drc@nulluky.edu  so the university can make arrangements. You are also encouraged to contact Jeannine Schaefer, the UK College of Education’s project manager, so College of Education faculty and staff can make sure all needs have been met. She can be reached at (859) 257-4014, jeannine.schaefer@nulluky.edu or in her office in room 133A Dickey Hall.

Having access to an elevator is crucial for those who work and learn in Dickey Hall. It is important to us that the elevator project does not impact student learning in any way. College planners sought to have work completed during the summer so students would experience as little impact as possible. The delay is extremely unfortunate. We apologize for issues the elevator project may cause and encourage those impacted to reach out for assistance.

Most of the College of Education’s K Week event on Tuesday, Aug. 21 is taking place on the first floors of Dickey Hall and the Taylor Education Building. The Education Library, located in 227 Dickey Hall, will be open for tours during the K Week Education Fair, but is only accessible via stairs. If you are unable to visit the library due to the elevator outage, please see the information below about accessing Education Library materials and services.
