Project Start Date: Fall 2019
Construction Start Date: 2024
Project Completion Date: 2026‐2027
The Student Union building will be built immediately to the Southwest of the current SSC, between B‐300 and the Gym. This will enable the cafe in the SSC to remain open until the building is completed. The Student Union is 25,000 square feet and will house a modern kitchen and café, as well as an indoor dining area that can hold over 200 people. It will also have a large retail space occupied by the bookstore, and a large food pantry. Upstairs will be home to Student Equity and Student Life, ASG, and a lounge open to all students.
The design began at the end of 2019, and we are submitting the plans for approval to the Division of the State Architect in July. The project is slated to begin construction in 2024.
At the completion of the Student Union and the Student Services Center, we will demolish the existing SSC and build a large quad with outdoor space and a lawn capable of seating 3000 people for graduation.
As part of the project we are also upgrading the Powerhouse 2 heating and cooling system.
The project will be designed to LEED Gold equivalency.
