Most of the facilities problems are due to construction, so this is something of an exaggeration (like the whole "falling in rankings"... umm, we're usually #7, and over the course of several years we're risen from closer to #9). I think they're making a "break room" and a place where you can get light snacks/coffee.... at least that's what I heard. The coffee situation is truly terrible now that Bucks closed.
I do agree that charging for lockers is completely ludicrous, as is the $10 fee per official transcripts (my UG, on the other hand, does not charge at all). But honestly, pissing off students by nickel-and-diming us when we're poor is just going to come back to bite the school after we're out making money, and they want our donations. Typical short-term thinking.
