Infrastructure and Facility Upgrades

Dear Parents,

Central State University has been busy creating a better CSU for our students.  We are making improvements to our Residence Halls, repairing roads and sidewalks and renovating campus buildings.  It is an exciting time at Central State, and we want you and your student to have all the information you need to navigate your way around the campus.

Safety and security for students and staff during renovations and construction is our top priority.  When you arrive on campus, you will see bright signage concerning check-in, the dorms and our road improvements.

You and your students will also find that campus staff will direct you to designated entrances and exits for your convenience.  They will answer questions to ensure you get to where you need to be with ease.

We are committed to keeping you informed.  Updates and more information can be found at

Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you and your student on campus.  We hope you share our excitement for the great changes happening here!
