Watch a Live Feed of the Tenley Campus Construction

Dear AUWCL Community,

I am pleased to share with you a brief update on the Tenley Campus construction – we are seeing significant progress! As some of you may be aware, you can now watch the construction/demolition through a 24 hour live feed. One of the last standing current buildings, Congressional, is scheduled for demolition early next week. Look for the “Big Dig” to start in the middle of next month.

This is an important time in the history of Washington College of Law and I look forward to sending additional updates about Tenley Campus construction throughout the year.

Claudio Grossman,
Dean
