On the UPR/Río Piedras Website, the home page uses a large tower photo as a background, and many pages have a tiny version in the page heading. There was once an English page is one on the then-forthcoming University centennial, with a small photo of the tower, as well as an undated rehabilitation plan for the tower and carillon. But all information about the tower seems to have disappeared in the latest Website redesign.
Elsewhere there are pictures of the tower along with plans for restoration of the carillon, clock, etc.
