Concordia University Student Life Center

Renovated Building Sets Students Up for Success | Mequon, WI

Concordia University needed to enhance the undersized student life venue with both functional and aesthetic updates for a growing student population.

The University chose to renovate an existing building to minimize costs and better utilize a building already central to the campus. The plan involved creating an expansive open space in the lower level allowing for many different student activities. The floor incorporates a large multi-purpose space, new food and beverage vendors, a computer lounge, a gaming area, a convenience store, and a television lounge.

On the first floor new office spaces allow for the consolidation of all student services.  An area open to the lower level allows activity to per eate and connect those on  both levels. A new ballroom allows the University to accommodate larger activities for both the students, administration and outside groups.  Both floors incorporate new large restroom facilities to replace previously undersized facilities.

This project will more effectively serve Concordia University in the recruitment of new students as well as their current population.
