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.
