Renovations of the Commons in Hodges Library are well underway and construction is moving along on schedule. Walls have been knocked down, and the ceiling is being prepared for the new lights that will be installed. Painting has also begun and new furnishings are on order. A display board outside the Commons shows the plans for the room and includes colors and fabric swatches. The Commons will reopen during Welcome Week.
The Summer Commons is open in the Hodges Library Media Center throughout the construction process. For more information about the Summer Commons and its services, or to see photographs of the ongoing Commons construction, please visit commons.utk.edu.
