About the Student Success District

In 2019, the university began construction to transform the Main Library, the Albert B. Weaver Science-Engineering Library, Bear Down Gym, and the new Bartlett Academic Success Center into an interconnected district that will empower generations of students. Outdoor patios and walkways will become more than connections between buildings; they will provide unique spaces for everything from collaboration to meditation. Inspired by the design of technology company campuses, the Student Success District will encourage students to move seamlessly between spaces that provide a full range of services and expertise allowing them to reach their academic and career goals.
