The crumbling of a small section of plaster on the domed ceiling of the Nott Memorial has caused the rescheduling of some events and
limited access to the first floor.

Mandeville Gallery and the third floor study remain open during regular building hours: daily 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The damage, which was discovered April 27,
is believed to be caused by moisture.

If no further damage is found and repairs stay on
schedule, the Nott is expected to be completely reopened before ReUnion
Weekend, May 20-23.

Photographs taken by College Facilities staff with an
infrared camera show “cool spots” and water damage in a section measuring about
three feet by three feet. Scaffolding will be erected inside the building on
Monday, May 3, to assess the damage and begin repairs. A large lift will be used
on the outside beginning Tuesday, May 4, (weather permitting) to repair the damage and inspect the entire roof.
