Mudd Access Ramp to be Upgraded

As part of Princeton University’s ongoing goal of expanding building accessibility, Mudd’s wheelchair ramp is scheduled to be upgraded starting on Monday, July 13, 2009.


This project is expected to take four weeks to complete. The first part of the construction involves the removal of the old ramp, which is expected to last three to four days. The initial removal work will involve jackhammers, which of course are very noisy. Please note that the ramp is immediately adjacent to Mudd’s reading room and the jackhammering will certainly be noticeable from within the reading room. During this time, Mudd staff will provide ear plugs for any patrons upon request.


During the construction period, any patrons who require an access ramp should enter Sherrerd Hall, adjacent to Mudd, and then exit through its east door, through which access to Mudd’s front door is possible.
