  1. 2 Cummington Building needs renovations!!

    It is great to have the desire to “revamp” Cummington mall as a more pedestrian street. I’d like to bring the attention of the BU community, however, on the conditions of the building located at 2 Cummington, 2nd floor and up.

    While the first floor was renovated, none of the other floors have. I am a master lecturer in the UPN Undergraduate Program in Neuroscience, I joined BU in 2013, and was assigned an office on the 5th floor. I cannot stay in my office during the cold months of winter because heating is not powerful enough-it turns out this is a problem also on the second floor, where our main office is located.

    On the fifth floor we had several problems, potentially hazardous: in the office next to mine, one of the tiles from the ceiling collapsed on my colleague’s desk, and we had several flooding episodes on the floor during raining season, that just went by the electrical cabinet (we have videos).

    Any chance to renovate this building?
