And We’re Moving…

Moves are underway! ETO, the first office to move, has been working hard to complete their transition such that they may support others moving in the coming weeks. We appreciate your patience throughout the transition. To ensure the success of your move, please readily prepare using guidance provided by the Dean’s Office and your move coordinators.

Move schedule

Below you will find a more defined schedule for moves over the next three weeks. Please be fully prepared to move on the date listed below understanding that the moving company may encounter delays. Move coordinators will be briefed at the end of each day regarding progress and delays.

Remember that you must label all boxes and all pieces of your furniture, to include shelves in bookcases, desk returns, chairs, etc to ensure proper delivery, noting the building and room number. We ask that you do not label your phone—it will move on its own.

If you have any concerns, please let me know as soon as possible.

Ruffner Hall Move FAQ

Construction Nearing Completion

The Ruffner Hall renovation project continues to move forward with all due speed. Construction crews are completing their work and leaving Ruffner Hall as phases of the renovation conclude. Final touches on Ruffner are underway now and will be complete in the next three weeks. While the barriers have come down, it remains important that faculty, staff, and students refrain from entering the facility until we take possession of Ruffner (on or around July 1).

Preparing to Move

Within weeks we will be moving back into Ruffner Hall and the dispersed people of Curry spread to the four corners of the Grounds and beyond shall return to their homeland.

Move coordinators

Office administrators are working together on move logistics, and will play a leading role in assisting you with move preparations.

There are several actions we can take now to position us for success:

Surplus. Why move surplus equipment or property into our shiny, new Ruffner? Submit a request via this form for surplus http://tinyurl.com/currysurplus.

Inventory. We will also need your assistance to create an inventory of items, computer equipment, and furniture you are expecting to move back to Ruffner. We hope to have this data compiled by the end of May.

Inquire. As you have questions or concerns about the move, please contact your administrator or Joey Carls (jcarls@virginia.edu).

Better than Ever!

Lobby 10aThe renovation of Ruffner Hall will help the Curry School maximize the student experience, with contemporary classroom space, comfortable common areas, and a healthy, inviting environment not known in Ruffner since the 1970s.

A state-of-the-art building when it was opened in 1973, Ruffner Hall has been closed since January 2013 for major renovation. The Commonwealth of Virginia has provided 100% of the $19 million cost to gut and update the interior of the 84,000-square-foot building and maintain its exterior. The project remains on time and on budget.

When Ruffner Hall reopens this summer, Curry School students will enjoy a healthier and more inviting building than ever before:

• New students gathering areas.
• Connector hallways in the center of the first and second floors.
• Better classroom configuration, optimized for class-size needs.
• Revamped auditorium space on the ground floor with new seating.
• Improved traffic flow.
• A quieter environment for working.
• A new first floor entrance Ruffner Hall to Bavaro Hall.

In addition, Ruffner will sport carpeted floors, all new heating/cooling systems, and a modernized elevator.

The Need

The Curry Foundation must raise $500,000 before October 25, 2014, for interior furnishings and critical upgrades, and we can’t do it without you. We must raise funds to furnish the important new common areas with comfortable seating, tables, and artwork that will reflect the stature of the Curry School and the value we place on our talented students. We also must raise money to equip our research spaces and common areas with the latest communication technologies.

Learn how you can honor a beloved professor or an esteemed classmate by naming a classroom or office!

Make a gift that will be combined with the gifts of other grateful alumni and friends to ensure that the Ruffner Hall renovation meets all its potential to support Curry’s mission.
