The dining area renovation has transformed the room so you can enjoy lunch, dinner and laughs with friends in a newly renovated space.


MEGA WEIGHT ROOM at Potter Fitness Center, Bldg. 622

The previous basketball court at the front of the facility has been transformed into a new weight room, with heavy duty floors, mirrors and equipment for lifting enthusiasts.


Flyers, Bldg. 626

Completed: Monday, Jan. 10, 2022

This renovation marked the beginning of addressing changes that the community emphasized a need and preference for. Flyers merged T’s Burritos and Café Mokuteki at the most desirable location for community convenience. We modernized the space to serve Edgren students, dorm residents and families that need to pick up great food in the hustle and bustle of their day to day lives.

What is the CAMPUS PLAN?

The Campus Plan is an ambitious multi-facility renovation endeavor that FSS is currently working. Strategic planning has taken place to give each facility a unique identity so that it best fulfills its purpose to customers. This effort is based on results of community needs surveys and the necessity to better services, modernize facilities and maximize indoor activity space during cold and rainy months. Our goal is to complete the Campus Plan within the next 2 years, as coordination efforts for project phases allows.

A Message From the Project Team

You’ll see renovations happening throughout the 35th Force Support Squadron that will repair infrastructures and move us toward more modern facilities. FSS is working with Civil Engineering and other entities to improve our services. Scan the QR code on posters to check in here for updates as we move through these projects.

You may see some construction signs, facility closures and functions moved around while we work. These renovation efforts are planned to support each unique service at its respective location when all projects are complete. A menu item or service you enjoyed may not currently be offered because it is planned for a future location.

As we continue to progress, please understand that projects take some time and the end goal is to provide the community with better FSS facilities and services. We are excited to make big improvements as a community and thank you for understanding these efforts.
