Fuzz, buzz find new campus homes

Public Safety, entomology make moves

Students weren't the only ones sweating through a move in the blazing sun this summer. The Public Safety Office and a portion of the collections of the Biodiversity Research Center both found new homes in July.

Public Safety Office

The Public Safety Office moved from its location in Carruth-O'Leary Hall to the former Printing Services Building late last month. The move will provide the office with much more space.

The move will not change the office's patrols of campus or response time. While dispatchers are located farther from the main campus, Oliver said officers will maintain their regular patrols and continue prompt response to calls.

Anyone on campus who needs to file a police report can still call the office, and an officer will come to the individual's location to take the report. People can go to Public Safety's new office for assistance.

The office's new address is 1501 Crestline Drive, and the phone number is still 864-5900.

Entomology/paleontology

The entomology collection, part of the invertebrate paleontology collection, and a small portion of the anthropology collection also moved to the former Printing Services building. The collections will share the building with Public Safety. The move started in early July.

Cases holding more than 2 million insect specimens were moved from Snow Hall, and the paleontology entries moved from Lindley Hall, said Mike Miller, assistant director of Facilities Operations remodeling and renovation.

The collections will be placed on a new floor-based track and rail system that will allow researchers to access a certain specimen, while keeping others stored.

The move freed up space in Snow Hall that will be used primarily by faculty of three new departments. The Department of Environmental Studies will move to Snow this fall, as will part of the Department of Mathematics faculty and classrooms. The Department of Economics will also relocate to Snow from Summerfield Hall in December.
