Designing a campus destination where students can collaborate outside of the classroom.

Student Center
Lewis University
Romeoville, IL

Lewis University commissioned Wight & Company to provide preliminary design services for a new Student Center on their Romeoville campus. The 40,000 sf Student Center will be solely focused on improving student life outside the classroom. The facility is designed to include an entirely new non-institutional dining experience, dedicated rooms for club meetings, cinema, offices for student life, and a ballroom for outside events and college convocation opportunities. Lewis University is home to many commuter students, as well as resident students, resulting in two distinct cultures. The new Student Center creates a hub where all types of students can unite and enjoy passive recreation and collaboration.
