Slippery Rock University is transforming its existing University Union into a state-of-the-art Student Success Center, aimed at centralizing essential resources for students. The newly renovated facility will span 82,665GSF and align with the university’s mission to empower students and prepare them for success in all aspects of life, especially in their careers.

Areas were designed for interview practice and postgraduate planning allowing students to work closely with professionals to develop the necessary skills and strategies for a successful transition into the workforce. The center features a 24-hour safe study area equipped with access control points at the entrance, helping students focus on their academic pursuits without concerns for their safety.

The center will house an upgraded student health center, conveniently located at the heart of the campus to ensure that students have easy access to healthcare services, promoting their overall well-being and contributing to their academic success. In addition, the Office of Disability Services and the Center for Career and Academic Progress will find a more permanent home in this new space.

In response to student needs, the center also introduces a new dining option which offers students convenience and flexibility in meeting their dietary needs. It will further enhance their college experience and foster a vibrant and inclusive campus community. All interior lighting and exterior building fixtures will be replaced with LEDs. Occupancy sensors will be placed throughout the facility programmed with light dimming systems for energy efficiency. This transformative project reflects the University’s dedication to supporting students’ goals and making them a reality.
