This new Student Success Center brings together key programs for student resources. Housing the registration and financial assistance departments, the three-story, 49,000-square-foot building also blends together women’s resources, veterans services, and a large tutoring and learning center. An occupiable interior terrain is created through open floor plates, making double-height spaces that connect large stairs with seating and accessible, flexible shared commons for learning groups and meeting spaces.

Exterior balconies and a large outdoor classroom along the nearby lake offer interior and exterior learning environments and collaboration space. The building has a large community room with operable partitions to offer a venue for a variety of student events. The interior program is connected to shared commons with large openings and glass storefronts to visually connect, assist wayfinding, and give flexibility to program requirements for collaborative and meeting spaces. Communal workrooms and storage spaces in addition to the flexible seating options offer opportunities for staff, faculty, and students to interact.
