The Student Center Building is a new three-story, approximately 58,340 square foot standalone building. This student center is a focal point and gathering place for students, faculty and visitors at the College.
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 new student center site takes advantage of its position fronting a new 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. The entryway to the new building frames a campus-wide portal that extends out to this remarkable landscape.
Exterior materials include aluminum composite panels, brick veneer masonry, pre-cast concrete, with aluminum windows, curtain wall system and glass.
