Tenley law school campus construction continues on schedule

Tenley law school campus construction continues on schedule

Construction continues on the Nebraska Wing of the Tenley campus of the Washington College of Law in January, 2015.

The construction of the new law school campus in Tenley continues, as the main building structures have been completed and tower cranes are being removed, Assistant University Architect Ferda Guzey said.

The University released pictures of the construction progress on the Washington College of Law web page, and a detailed list of construction projects can also be found on AU’s website.

Tenley Campus is still scheduled to open in Spring 2016, Guzey said in an email.

“The Tenley Campus will be substantially completed in early fall and we will be preparing the facilities over the fall semester,” Guzey said in an email. “The move will be completed in December with classes set to begin at the new campus spring semester 2016.”

Parts of the Washington College of Law were originally expected to move to the new campus in the fall 2015 semester, but poor weather and infrastructure issues made this goal impossible, the Eagle previously reported.

The construction of Tenley Campus is a part of the University’s 2011 Campus Plan that was approved by the D.C. Zoning Commission on March 8, 2012.

“The projects included as part of AU's 2011 campus plan reflect our intent to strengthen the university's academic prestige, maintain our standing as an asset to Washington, DC., and honor a commitment to be an amenity to the surrounding community,” Guzey said in an email.
