Offices move back to Miller Building

Offices move back to Miller Building

SUNY Cortland’s renovation of Miller Building is nearly complete, with many offices serving both students and employees returning to their permanent locations.

The second and third floors received their first major renovation since the administration building opened in 1967. Both floors were completely transformed, bringing new office layouts, meeting areas, technology and several energy-efficient upgrades such as lighting.

“This project required a great deal of planning and patience, and it was worth the wait,” said Zachariah Newswanger, SUNY Cortland’s associate vice president for facilities management. “These updates were necessary and complicated, so I am grateful for the efforts of our Facilities Planning Design and Construction team as well as the many campus offices impacted by the work. The forward-facing offices on Miller Building’s second and third floors now have brighter, more inviting spaces that they deserve.”

The project’s initial work started in June 2021 with a demolition phase that impacted Miller Building’s second through fourth floors. Fourth-floor offices returned in the spring, while others remained relocated through the early fall.

The full list of second- and third-floor offices and their new permanent locations includes:

  • Business Office – Miller Building, Room 310

  • Extended Learning Office – Miller Building, Room 208

  • Financial Aid Office – Miller Building, Room 209

  • Human Resources Office – Miller Building, Room 302

  • Payroll Office – Miller Building, Room 301

  • Research and Sponsored Programs – Miller Building, Room 303

  • Student Accounts Office – Miller Building, Room 201

  • Student Registration and Record Services – Miller Building, Room 203

  • Title IX Office – Miller Building, Room 309 

With the Miller Building project nearing completion, the next major campus project expected to begin during the 2022-23 academic year is the renovation of the C-wing of Cornish and Van Hoesen halls.

That space, located near the former Tomik Fitness Facility, will be transformed with updates for the Communication and Media Studies Department as well as several other academic and student service areas, including the Disability Resources Office, Counseling and Wellness Services and the Educational Opportunity Program.
