The heart of student life at Campbell, the student union enhances educational lives by blending the academic experience with social opportunities to make Campbell graduates well-rounded, confident, and capable leaders of society.
Developed to replace an undersized student center, this facility joins the “Academic Circle”, located at the heart of the campus, and offers amenities designed to bring students, faculty and the larger community together. The site for this student union was chosen for its visibility from a main throughfare and its adjacency to a pedestrian path leading from student housing on the south campus.
