NSU Student Commons

Norfolk, Virginia
Norfolk State University
Tymoss + Moss, PC
140,000 square feet

Comprised of the new 84,000 square foot Student Center and 56,000 square foot Student Success Center at Godwin Hall, the Student Commons is a vibrant hub with community gathering spaces for a variety of functions. The Student Center features a multipurpose auditorium, food court and dining area, game room, a wellness and group-fitness center, and space for student government offices. Unique features include a two-story bookstore, a reflecting pool with fountains, and the indoor/outdoor stage with a retractable glass door that opens up to allow performances to be viewed from the indoor seating area or outdoor amphitheater. Godwin Hall houses the Student Success Center with a mail center, disability services, admissions, enrollment, financial aid, registrar, academic support, counseling, and career services. A pedestrian sky bridge connects the two buildings, allowing for an easy flow from one building to the other and creating a one-stop shop for all student needs.
