The facility will provide space for the College of Law to accommodate a projected student population of 450 FTEs and include: instructional, administration, offices, law library, building common areas, research areas, individual study, collaborate spaces, recreation, dining, student lounge, and associated and support spaces. The facility is planned to have approximately 155,800 GSF


The Law school will be a campus gateway located on a main arrival quadrant.  The Law School’s building character must possess visual potency, given the visually dominant qualities of  nearby campus buildings. The Law School is being designed to its own singular identity while meaningfully contributing as a gateway to the entire campus’ development. The architecture will embody the College of Law’s innovative academic programs and approach to legal education, offering a dynamic and interactive relationship.  At the interior, these qualities will include promoting collaboration, connecting activity visually, creating adaptable spaces for emerging teaching methods and programs, and conceiving of all building spaces as learning, research, and service spaces.
