SUBJECT:  Relocation of Eleanor Roosevelt College

Eleanor Roosevelt College is relocating to the north campus. Designed by international architects Moshe Safdie and Associates and built by Rudolph and Sletten Contractors, the new ERC neighborhood includes housing for 1,240 students in residence halls and apartments; residence life offices; a student activities center; and laundry facilities. It is also home to UCSD International House which is managed by ERC for the campus and features apartment housing, a Great Hall, seminar/meeting rooms, and offices. At the north end of the complex are Café Ventanas, a full dining facility, and the ERC Administration Building, which will also house the Institute for International, Comparative, and Area Studies (IICAS) and the Center for Comparative Immigration Studies (CCIS). A site map is posted at http://roosevelt.ucsd.edu/.

On July 30-31, the following ERC units will relocate to our new administration building, east of Scholars Drive at the north end of the complex: Provost's Office, Business Office, MMW/Writing Program Offices and Teaching Assistant Suite, Academic Advising, and Student Affairs Dean's Office. During the move, we shall check voice mail and e-mail and will respond as promptly as possible. The mail code for these units will change from 0069 to 0546 effective August 1, 2003. Telephone extensions will not change.

Access to our new offices will be limited during August. Individuals should walk south on Scholars Drive from Parking Lot 351 and take the short flight of stairs on the left between the single-story north annex and the three-story administration building; up the walkway on the right is an entrance to the first-floor elevator lobby. Delivery trucks will need to turn left from Scholars Drive onto the fire lane north of the single-story north annex. The rest of the complex will remain a construction site during August.

ERC Residence Life offices and live-on professional staff will move in early September, and another campus notice will be sent at that time.
