A majority of electrical engineering graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and visitors will relocate their offices this month, as the engineering school prepares to repurpose the F-Wing's current office spaces into a multidisciplinary robotics center.
Some of the new offices will be in the E-Quad while others will be in a newly renovated space on the third floor of the Friend Center library. Relocation assignments went out on Friday, Jan. 31.
In an email to community members, department chair Sharad Malik and director of graduate studies Kaushik Sengupta highlighted details about how and when to move.
Here is what you need to know:
- Friday, Feb. 7
Pack up by 5pm. Take all your belongings home with you or put them in boxes to be temporarily stored in the F-Wing. If you are moving to the Friend Center, leave your boxes near the F310 balcony. If you are moving to an office in the E-Quad, leave your boxes in the F210 common area. Clearly label your box(es) with your name and new room number.
- Monday, Feb. 10
Friend Center occupants move in. Note that you will not have access to your office between 5:00 p.m. Feb. 7 and 7:00 a.m. Feb. 10.
- Monday, Feb. 17
E-Quad occupants move in. Note that you will not have access to your office between 5:00 p.m. Feb. 7 and 7:00 a.m. Feb 17.
- Saturday, Feb. 8–Sunday, Feb. 16
F-Wing furniture will be dismantled and installed in renovated E-Quad rooms. All offices with new occupants will be cleaned.
- Members of the Houck, Shayegan and Wysocki groups, in addition to a few people in other groups, will not relocate.
Malik called the relocations a "big project" and expressed thanks for community members' help and patience throughout the process.
