The University of Arizona Student Success District drives students’ 24/7 development through an array of services and spaces based on collaborative, hands-on learning with deep technological engagement. Inspired by the design of technology company campuses, the District will encourage students to move seamlessly between spaces that provide a full range of services and expertise allowing them to reach their academic and career goals.
Located in the heart of the University of Arizona campus, the Albert B. Weaver Science-Engineering Library and Main Library renovations are an integral component to the Student Success District, a new ground-breaking addition to the University’s urban fabric. Designed by The Miller Hull Partnership, LLP in association with Poster Mirto McDonald, the library renovations are a part of the larger District estimated to be completed in the fall. The design team has redefined and revitalized the Main Library and Science-Engineering Library and will continue work on the new Bartlett Center for Academic Success and the Bear Down Gymnasium renovation. Supporting the District’s overall goals, both libraries increase flexibility and convert floors dense with shelving into collaborative space to promote student learning.
