The conversion of this former DCYF structure on the East Campus is designed to compliment recently completed renovations at Buildings 4, 5 and 10. The Financial Aid office occupies the first level, in necessary proximity to the Admission’s and Bursar’s offices in adjacent buildings. The ground level adds new classroom spaces, and a much-needed “café” food service component in the heart of the East  Campus.

Renovations to Building 3 added a much-needed “café” food service component to the heart of the East Campus. The café features a variety of beverages and grab-and-go food service and serves students attending classes in Building 3, as well as the College’s administrative staff, most of whom work in Building 3 or the adjacent buildings. Vision 3 Architects worked closely with members of the student government, helping them choose their own furniture and designing a welcoming space to relax and hang-out.
