Averett University Student Center Architecture & Design

The 41,860 SF Student Center at Averett University provides students with a central gathering place to exchange ideas and develop the personal, professional, and academic relationships so integral to collegiate life. Outside of these benefits, the student center aims to attract more students to this former “commuter” campus by providing them with a variety of spaces and activities that build interaction and community.

The Student Center contains amenities on four levels, including a coffee shop, convenience store, game room, TV room, and computer lab. The building also features a central dining facility, which features a 300-seat, multi-purpose, state-of-the-art “performance kitchen” and other dining spaces, such as an outdoor patio with cafe tables and a rooftop terrace.

The Student Center also provides a centralized location for Averett’s administration offices, career services center, and a one-stop location for all student activities and leadership organizations.
