Anatomy Hall Elevator Modernization

January 14, 2021

Construction activity will start Thursday, Jan. 21, to modernize and repair the main elevator in Anatomy Hall. The elevator will be temporarily out-of-service during the project; duration is 6 weeks after which the elevator will again be operational. Working hours for this project are 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday. 

The building occupants and visitors can expect the following:

  • Access between floors using the stairs will be maintained.
  • Vehicles will be on site at times during construction working hours. 
  • Testing of the elevator will occur as the project nears completion.
  • Signage identifying alternate access throughout the building will be in place at each floor and at the building entrance.

Please note:

  1. If an “in-service” elevator becomes non-operational, please contact the Facilities Services work center by calling 4-1414.
  2. If a person requires assistance with exiting the building at any time, please contact UCPD by calling 123 from a desk telephone or 773.702.8181.
