19 Fountain Will Bring the Noise

ResLife just sent out an apparently very belated courtesy email last week informing students living around 19 Fountain that… by the way, they’ll be living next to a noisy construction site for all of fall semester. Kind of short notice, especially with such little apparent previous warning:

In case you were not already aware of it, the university is building a new undergraduate house at 19 Fountain, which will consist of three five person units. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of the semester. For those of you in the immediate neighborhood, the work will be noisy at times. Workers are typically on site between 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. We apologize in advance for any inconveniences or disturbances caused. For your own safety, please do not enter the construction area… Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Thom Sisson ’09 asks “Did they even mention this during GRS last year? I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have picked my house if I knew I was going to be woken up at 7 am by construction workers.”

Sorry 19 Fountain neighbors, bring earplugs I guess. Construction details are available here.

    I’m living in perhaps one of the closest rooms to the construction site and its not so bad, also we knew about it last year, the construction site was already leveled and there were clearly plans to build on it when we visited the house in the spring.

    They tried to move the residents out during winter break last year so they could knock it down. Lesson to be learned: juniors – pay attention to the houses pplant is all over this year because next year you won’t want to be their neighbor.

    ok 8:12 asshole, the point here is that students choosing their housing didn’t know about the noise when they chose to live on Fountain – a factor that would probably have affected their decision. of course there’s going to be construction, but it would’ve been nice to know about it beforehand.

    Poor kids. You probably thought that angels dropped your housing down from the heavens completely furnished. It is a shame that you actually have to listen to the sound of your housing being constructed. Perhaps this is a reason for another Fountain Street riot.
