The Chesapeake Campus is the college’s “green” campus, sitting on 69 acres of land. The landscape includes protected wetlands and a tributary of the southern branch of the Elizabeth River. Green space from all buildings, especially the Chesapeake Student Center with glass walls that provide views of the open spaces. Students in the sciences enjoy the living laboratories with wildlife and birds, as the campus is a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.
The Student Center Building is a three-story, approximately 58,340 square foot standalone building. The building contains student activity and recreation spaces, lounge / study areas, meeting rooms, a café / food service operation, a range of multi-purpose event rooms with movable walls for student events and conferencing, a fitness center, a campus store and an area dedicated to child minding services.
The student center site takes advantage of its position fronting a central campus green space as well as a distinctive, tidal wetland landscape to the north feeding the Elizabeth River. The building’s recreation spaces and café spills out to a lively terrace edging this unique wetland—engaging the special portion of campus designated as an Audubon sanctuary.
Exterior materials include aluminum composite panels, brick veneer masonry, pre-cast concrete, with aluminum windows, curtain wall system and glass.
TCC’s Chesapeake Student Center offers state-of-the-art facilities for studying, dining, meeting, fitness, student life, leadership development or simply relaxing in between classes.
