A new center of student life on a state university campus.

The first floor houses lounge spaces, Coyote Lanes bowling alley, Cantina pub, game room, social stairs, bookstore, burger grill and dining. An elevated outdoor plaza provides access to the second level that offers a large 12,000-square-foot conference center and meeting spaces.
The top level takes advantage of the spectacular surrounding views and is referred to as the Student Success floor, housing the Asian Pacific Islander Center, First Peoples Center, Latinx Center, Pan-African Student Success Center, Osher Adult Re-Entry Center, Queer and Transgender Resource Center, Women’s Resource Center, Associated Students Incorporated (ASI), Office of Student Engagement, Leadership Lab and additional study/lounge spaces. The bold and iconic project creates a hub at the very center of campus, supporting a thriving student life culture for the university.
