20 Washington Place Student Success Center

The first floor of 20 Washington Place will be renovated to include a new Advising Center, including the Registrar’s Office and Student Financial Services, and the Career Center. The lobby will be reworked to include flexible gathering and presentation spaces, spaces to showcase student work, and an events space that will allow a range of reception opportunities. In the parking area to the rear of the building we will build a new structure that will include a new mail room with better receiving space for packages, a cardboard recycling area, and a new 2,400 SF multipurpose space with upgraded technology capabilities and flexible configuration potential. A new entrance on the east side of the building will provide accessible entry.
