The University will be conducting surveys to determine what renovations are necessary in Usen Castle, Vice President for Operations James Gray announced in an email sent to the Brandeis community last Wednesday. As Gray noted in his email, the Castle’s age and lack of recent renovations might pose a risk to students as engineering teams investigate its infrastructure.“Please be aware that the study of the exterior [of the building], and the changes in weather, can pose a serious danger of falling debris, especially with a facility like the Castle,” he wrote. Gray also noted that the Castle will be roped off with hazard tape and students will not be allowed on the roof of the building.
