Campanile takes a sabbatical
Tower closes until fall semester



03 April 2002 | The campus’s 88-year-old landmark, Sather Tower, also known as the Campanile, has been temporarily closed to visitors so that the tower elevator can undergo repairs and modernization. The Campanile is expected to reopen in the fall.

Although the tower is closed to visitors, concerts featuring the tower’s 61- bell carillon will continue on their regular schedule daily at 7:50 a.m., noon and 6 p.m. Longer concerts are conducted Sundays at 2 p.m.

Free weekend campus tours will continue to originate outside the tower at 10 a.m. on Saturdays and 1 p.m. on Sundays. Weekday tours begin at the Visitor Center in University Hall. For tour information, call 642-5215.
