Located at the heart of the CSU campus, the new Student Center will be approximately 138,000 SF and will provide services for the student body including the main food service kitchen, retail and campus dining, pub, University Bookstore, main atrium, ballroom and new offices for Student Life, Student Government and Student Organizations. Prior to new construction, the project consists of demolishing the existing 5-story University Center built in 1974 to make way for the new building.
The new building will work to unite the links between the City of Cleveland at Euclid Avenue, the Campus Main Plaza, and adjacent classroom buildings to the east and west via the campus “interlink” bridge system. The Student Center will open into the fabric of the city life along Euclid Avenue as well as tie into the new Euclid Corridor Project.
The campus “interlink” pedestrian system connects through the entire campus that spans continuously from 18th Street on the west side of campus ending at the eastern edge of campus along 24th Street. This “interlink” system is inserted through the new Student Center on the second floor, creating another major entry presence on a multi-level campus.

Along with the process of demolishing the existing building, the new Student Center will strive to achieve LEED Silver Certification from the United States Green Building Council and incorporate many environmentally conscious design ideas that will evolve as the project develops.
