In 2019, the university began construction to transform the Main Library, the Albert B. Weaver Science-Engineering Library, Bear Down Gym, and a new four-story student success building into an interconnected "Student Success District" to empower generations of students. Outdoor patios and walkways are more than connections between buildings; they provide unique spaces for everything from collaboration to meditation.
The Student Success District is the place that drives students’ 24/7 development through an array of services and spaces based on collaborative, hands-on learning with deep technological engagement.
This distinctive project brings together the UA’s commitment to academic excellence, student support, health and wellness and the preparation students need to become leaders in the modern workplace. The CATalyst Studios offers a divers range of maker technology.
The SSD encourages students to move seamlessly between spaces that provide a full range of services and expertise, allowing them to reach their academic and career goals.
