Student-centered spaces provide opportunities for connections, collaboration, and learning outside the classroom.
Analysis of student space found overall shortages. Student spaces are concentrated in Campus North around the Pit, resulting in uneven distribution and access that leave large areas of campus underserved. There is a critical need for additional dining seat capacity in key locations, especially in Lenoir Hall, to meet demand at peak hours. Retail dining supports vibrant community gathering spaces and is frequently requested, but is challenging due to the inherent difficulties that arise in operating small venues. A shortage of meeting spaces was identified across campus, and evidence suggests that students use classrooms after hours to fill the gaps. This category also includes student health; however, student health was excluded from the student-centered space metric. All student health space is in the space quality category of severe.
