Slippery Rock University plans to renovate former Union building

Jan. 15, 2023
Following the $19 million upgrade, the building will be called the Campus Success Center.

Renovations to the former University Union building at Slippery Rock University in Slippery Rock, Pa., will begin this spring.

The university says it has renamed the building the Campus Success Center in anticipation of the $19.4 million renovation, scheduled for completion in 2024.

Upon its completed renovation, the Campus Success Center will house the following offices:

  • Office of Disability Services.,
  • Financial Aid Office.
  • Student Support Office.
  • Mailing Services.
  • Parking Office.
  • Student Counseling Center.
  • Center for Career and Academic Progress.
  • Student Health Center.
  • Shell spaces for future development.

"The Campus Success Center will serve as a centralized location for students to access resources they need and to be successful," said Scott Albert, associate vice president for facilities, environmental safety and sustainability. "This is a great way to improve our existing space with better placement of offices that will create more opportunities for collaboration and flexibility."

Built in 1970, the former University Union has been a gathering place for Slippery Rock students, faculty, staff and the community. Many functional areas in the building were relocated in 2012 when the Smith Student Center opened.

Most recently, the building has housed the Office of Disability Services, Mailing Services, and the Parking Office, 

The building underwent expansions in 1994 and 2001, but no major renovations have occurred in the last 20 years.

"There will be both interior and exterior work with all new mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems," Albert said. "But the building itself won't expand as far as square footage."
