The centerpiece of one of the largest campus transformations in the nation, the new facility celebrates the university's evolution from a largely commuter campus to a nationally recognized Tier One research university. The design seamlessly blends modernization and new construction to create a dynamic campus destination, integrating larger flexible gathering spaces with more formally designated service and administrative spaces. More than doubling the size of the facility has enhanced the campus experience, fostering community among resident and commuting students, and advancing the University's institutional brand.
