Bellevue College Student Success Center
Bellevue, WA / 86,620 SF
The new Student Success Center is home to more than 15 departments and is prominently located at the main gateway and center of the college campus, convenient for students and visitors to get information about the public institution. Inspired by the college’s mantra of “students first,” the flagship facility encompasses three floors that mirror students’ ascent and progression through their academic journey, with entry services located on the first floor, student support services on the second floor, and student success services on the top floor. The center includes several student commons areas, tutoring rooms, testing rooms, administrative offices, and coffee bar. On the top floor resides the Commons, a 979- person, 12,000 sf event space with a warming kitchen, which will be available for use by both student groups and the community at large to convene. The Student Success Center creates an integrated and seamless service experience for students by housing multiple support programs in one facility and is a place where they will receive guidance, reflect on their progress, and celebrate their achievements.
