College at Brockport finishes $1 million in upgrades

The College at Brockport has completed over $1 million in upgrades, officials said.

The funding was provided by the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York, the state’s capital project development authority otherwise known as DASNY. The upgrades are part of a larger, $30 million infusion for improvements across SUNY campuses within 90 days. The efforts were made to prepare for the fall semester.

“These ongoing upgrades have a significant impact on the residential living experience of our students as we continue to build a better Brockport,” said Heidi Macpherson, president of The College at Brockport, in a statement.

The work at Brockport included bathroom upgrades, the replacement of 80 doors and the installation of attic ventilation fans in six townhouse complex buildings.

“DASNY is proud to deliver these upgrades to The College at Brockport with our hallmark speed and efficiency,” said Gerrard Bushell, president and CEO of DASNY, in a statement. “Improving and maintaining student living environments helps our SUNY campus partners compete for top talent, supports the next generation of leaders and will help keep moving the Finger Lakes region’s economy forward.”
