In August and October 2020, Hurricanes Laura and Delta dealt a dual blow to Southwest Louisiana, devastating the region and impacting every facility on our beautiful campus.
We are working rapidly to assess, remediate, repair and rebuild your campus as quickly as possible – safely and efficiently.
Our facilities may be damaged, but our morale and determination are not.
We are rising to the challenge that faces us and moving forward with an aggressive construction schedule that allows our students to return to campus for the start of the Spring 2021 semester.
McNeese has assembled some of Louisiana’s leading disaster recovery, architectural and engineering firms to guide its campus rebuild effort rapidly, effectively and safely. We have broken the campus into seven sections, with multiple contractors working simultaneously to bring back your campus.
The map below provides insight into the different quadrants that contractors are currently assigned to. The campus is divided into seven sections. Phase I indicates buildings that contractors are working on now, and all items marked in red are areas of the campus that require more planning and discussions with the University insurance provider and FEMA representatives.
No, the campus rebuild project will be covered through insurance and FEMA reimbursements. There will not be any additional fees or tuition increases.
Yes. All of our resident halls are priority projects.
We are eager to have the McNeese community back on campus. Campus events will depend on COVID guidelines and the Governor's orders for large group gatherings. Currently, we are allowed to have 50% room capacity while maintaining six feet of social distancing.
