Spring 2018 Construction update

The South Loop Elementary construction, located across the alley, is still in progress. Parking will continue to be more difficult than usual and we will still experience some vibration and noise. The dock area needs to be clear for student equipment pickups/returns and MPC building service contractors. Please do not block or park in the dock.

Entering the building

When entering the MPC, everyone is required to show their Columbia College ID to the security officer at the front desk in the lobby; guests including actors who do not have a college ID must sign in.
