The University awarded a contract for repair roofing services.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which
immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
On Monday July 11, 2011 a severe line of thunderstorms impacted the roof at 809 S. Damen Ave., Chicago on the Single Student Residence Building. The entire roofing membrane, insulation and related sheet metal was blown off the student residence building’s penthouse onto the roof of the UIC Student Center West at 828 S. Wolcott Street, Chicago causing extensive damage to that roof as well.
