Student and Academic Services Buildings
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Chapel Hill, North Carolina
The Student and Academic Services Buildings provide a new home for a variety of student services previously dispersed around the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The 88,000-square-foot project consists of two three-story buildings disposed along a major campus pedestrian path at a key intersection in the south part of the campus. The larger north building contains joint meeting and conference spaces on the ground floor and student services offices on the upper floors. The south building offers 24-hour functions such as a university computer lab and help center. Both buildings are sheathed in red brick, with oversized wood windows, and a metal roof bringing the language of the historic core to this developing area of the campus, recalling in particular the architecture of A.J. Davis, an early contributor to the fine architecture of the university. A future third structure to house the ROTC program is contemplated.
