Blackhawk Student Center & Residence Hall


Learning doesn’t just take place in a classroom. Academic success dramatically improves when students engage with fellow students. However, we need a place to cultivate these opportunities. Building a facility with gathering spaces, study rooms and other modern amenities will enable us to provide a better learning environment and college experience for all our students.

To build a real campus community, students need a place to go that fosters connections through opportunities for interaction outside of the classroom. Current student amenities and spaces are limited.

While our current projects focus on developing our academic infrastructure, we have investigated ways to provide student spaces that are outside the scope of the Building the Dream campaign. To address this need, SCC has partnered with a private developer to bring these spaces to campus. Plans are in place to build new residence halls and a student center on the West Burlington campus.

These facilities will become the hub of student activity. Students will gather there for all sorts of reasons: to study, to network, to play, and to relax. It will facilitate student interaction and engagement in an inviting, comfortable environment designed to complement learning and enhance the college experience.

The proposed West Burlington campus Blackhawk Student Center will feature open gathering spaces, a multipurpose gymnasium, a running track, exercise machines, weight rooms, and locker rooms.
