In Summer 2023, Loyola began various stormwater improvements and interventions to protect campus buildings, including Piper Hall. Additionally, in March 2024, work began on the south lawn of Piper Hall to install a geothermal well. As these projects continue, the WLA remains open to visitors by appointment.
