The Student Services Building symbolizes the aspirations and mission of the university and serves as the campus “front door” for prospective students, returning students, alumni and visitors. It houses the office of the president, division of university advancement, and divisions of academic, student and administrative affairs.
The undulating roof design is inspired by the surrounding hills and mountains, branding the building both as a campus landmark and a memorable place of arrival. The roof also serves a primary and essential role in passive solar design. Its perforated overhangs shade the exterior glass, reduce thermal loads and glare, and maximize good quality daylight. Other passive and mechanical sustainable strategies serve to optimize visual and thermal comfort, operational flexibility and aesthetic sensitivity.
