We told you last week that longtime campus fave Players would be closing at the end of November. It turns out that neighboring Schlotzsky’s will also close around the same time. The restaurants’ closures make way for the 458,000-square-foot Robert B. Rowling Hall, a building which will house the McCombs School of Business Texas MBA and Texas MSTC programs.
A partial construction fence has been erected, and the entire area will be fenced by December 1, when construction will begin. Detours on surrounding roads will last through construction, according to a university spokesman.
