Hackensack Meridian Health and Seton Hall University want to thank the IHS campus community members for your cooperation and patience through the ongoing recovery from the extensive water damage to the building. We also wanted to keep you up to date with the recovery efforts that are ongoing.

The building is open for business and most classes will be held in their designated classrooms on Monday, January 28. Most audio-visual equipment is operational. Of highest importance, all life safety systems are fully operational and certified. The heat is on but the building is chilly, so dress warmly. The sprinkler systems are working. The air has been tested and preliminary testing indicates the air is safe. Bathrooms are working. The student lounge areas and study rooms on the east side of the building are open. The Daily Dose café is open. The Student Services departments, including Counseling, Disability Support Services, and Student Life, are open. The Chapel is open and Mass is being said according to the usual schedule.

The recovery work was prioritized in order to get the classroom space operational on an urgent basis, but much work remains to be done and work crews will be present for the foreseeable future to get all areas of the building back to business. Restoration of these areas is in various stages of construction, so we ask you to pardon our appearance as we bring the campus back to its previous luster.

Faculty offices are the next priority for re-construction.

Selected areas of the building are still closed. The Game Room is closed. The bookstore is closed. Librarians, Media Services and PC Support Services have relocated to the 1500 pod in Student Services. Community members may visit them there for personal assistance. For electronic library assistance, contact ihslibrary@shu.edu; for electronic technical assistance, contact servicedesk@shu.edu.

Finally, we ask your continued good will and patience, knowing that the recovery crews are working industriously and strategically to bring the campus back to 100% usage. Please continue to read your email and maintain contact with your academic departments and instructors.

Again, our sincere thanks for your understanding and support as we recover from this unwanted and unanticipated event. Hazard zet forward.

Vice President of Student Services
