The Student Learning Center supports the University of Georgia’s mission to teach, serve and encourage inquiry through the integration of classroom and library experience. The facility promotes interaction and collaboration between the students, faculty and the extended academic community. The 205,000 square foot facility integrates 26 classrooms that seat over 2,400 students with a 2,600-seat “virtual library.” The library offers study areas for individuals and groups to promote information literacy with computer network connections. The comprehensive programming and collaborative approach to the design resulted in a  project with unparalleled approval campus wide.


“I am writing to thank you again for the great work you did at the Student Learning Center at the University of Georgia. After two years of student and faculty usage, I still get daily high praise for the building. It’s an elegant and functional plan, with high quality applied in just the right places. Your comprehensive programming and collaborative approach to the design has resulted in a project that has unparalleled approval campus wide.”
