The area bounded by the Library, Business building, Cesar Chavez Student Center and the quad is fenced off for construction on the Library plaza and accessible pathway to 19th Avenue. Pedestrian traffic has been rerouted to the pathway/courtyard between the Business and HSS buildings. Adjoining buildings will remain open during construction and only some entry points will be affected. Combining the plaza and pathway projects will expedite their completion and ensure the pedestrian core of campus will be open and welcoming to students when they arrive this fall.
A map of the construction area and detours can be viewed at www.sfsu.edu/~build/images/Library_plaza.pdf
The intersection between the Student Services building and Student Health Center will be closed Thursday and Friday, July 28 and July 29, as part of the parking garage pathway re-grading project. Traffic entering and exiting Lot 6 will use the service road east and north of Cox Stadium that connects to North State Drive. The service road will be one-way in both directions, with flaggers stationed at both ends to allow traffic to move alternately in each direction. Drivers are advised to allow extra time to reach or leave Lot 6.
Pedestrians going to and from the core of campus and the garage and Library Annex buildings should use the pathway between the Village Apartments and the Student Services building.

Human Resources initiatives

Submitting events to CampusMemo
CampusMemo picks up event listings directly from the University Calendar.

To submit an event, go to www.sfsu.edu/calendar/ and click on "Submit an Event" in the left-hand navigation bar. This procedure saves event sponsors the extra step of entering information specifically for CampusMemo, and the later deadline for submittal allows more time for event sponsors to submit their items to CampusMemo.
