If you are new to campus or returning since we reopened, here are a few construction projects to be aware of on the Health Sciences Campus: 

  • Adjacent to the residence halls, The Dental College of Georgia and the J. Harold Harrison, M.D., Education Commons, you will see the new College of Science and Mathematics building taking shape. Construction teams are working toward its opening in summer 2021.

    Please watch your step and pardon our progress as we continue growing and changing at Augusta University.

    The city of Augusta has been working on pedestrian improvements to 15th Street from Calhoun Expressway to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard for more than a year. New sidewalks, medians, crosswalks and signals are among the added amenities.   

  • The city is also replacing sidewalks and repaving entrances to several driveways along the west end of Laney-Walker Boulevard between Druid Park and 15th Street. The city is also expected to resurface this portion of Laney-Walker in September.  
  • Work is happening on the backside of the Radiation Therapy Center of the Georgia Cancer Center on St. Sebastian, but little interruption is expected. 
  • Fencing has been installed around the Alumni Center as crews begin prepping the building for demolition. This project, once completed in 2021, will provide more parking on the Health Sciences Campus

For your protection, please exercise caution when traversing the Health Sciences Campus. Always stay alert to your surroundings and follow posted construction signage.
