Student Services Building, Rhode Island College

KITE’s design for a new “one-stop” Student Services Center combines health and counseling with student services such as bursar, registrar, financial aid, and veterans’ resource services.

Currently, access to these important resources and support networks is scattered across campus.  The new center consolidates services and leverages visibility to encourage their effectiveness, increase retention, and improve student life. 

Our experienced team led programming discussions and developed surveys to identify synergies and collaborative opportunities of the several different departments, gaining support for the transformational change along the way.

KITE’s study for the new Student Services Building has also determined an alternate, not previously considered, location that creates a new gateway to campus with close proximity to residence halls and improved access for emergency vehicles.
