Senior Thesis

The New Library at the University of Virginia's College at Wise is to serve as the central link between the existing upper and lower campuses, which are currently divided by a steep 60 foot hill. With the addition of the new library, students will be able to travel across campus more easily and safely due to the incorporation of a 24 hour access zone.
Along with numerous books and reference material the library will offer several other amenities to students including study rooms, conference rooms, smart workstations, and a café. The 6 story library will be 68,000 sq. ft. and will cost approximately $43 million. Construction began in August 2012 and is scheduled to be completed in August 2015.
