College Services Renovation

 

The first phase of the College Services Renovation Project will help create an updated Integrated Student Services "Hub" that centralizes student service locations and will improve the overall service experience for students. It will also provide modernized classrooms and small group spaces for projects and study on the first floor of the building with these design principles in mind:

  • Foster student engagement
  • Simplify access to services
  • Create flexible classrooms that accommodate a variety of teaching methods
  • Improve wayfinding and building navigation
  • Design with safety in mind
  • Bring in natural light
  • Right-size classrooms
  • Sound mitigation

The first phase will begin on Thursday, October 17 during MEA Break. Student services will be moving to temporary locations in the Partnership Center in early October. They will move back to their newly renovated spaces in College Services at the end of the academic year, May 2020.

College Services Commons Cafe
Classroom 1 Classroom 2 Classroom 3

Future home of a one-stop, centralized services for students.  The welcome desk will serve as the first point of contact with both face-to-face assistance, self-serve technology and an automated queuing system.  Centralized services will be staffed by cross-trained student services staff who will assist students with many items that are transactional in nature and are related to Financial Aid, Payments & Billing and Records & Registration.  Students can be assisted in the open-concept table area of the center or through utilization of private consultation rooms outlining the perimeter.  Respective student service department staff will be housed in offices behind this area with direct access to assist students as needed.  Down the corridor just beyond this centralized one-stop area will be the Admissions department on the left, and directly upstairs on the second level is the Tutoring Center.

On the right of the Commons you see open study and gathering spaces for student use.  These spaces will allow for flexible use and are equipped with plug-ins for technology.  Just beyond, you see an open staircase going from first to third floors.  At the end of the hall you will find the Café (replacing Java Junction) to your left and access to open seating space and restrooms to your right.

The Café has added space for traffic flow and seating.  Informal seating options are added at the end of the hallway and open to the 2nd floor to take advantage of light coming in from the courtyard.
