In 2010, WalterFedy completed a master plan for St. Jerome’s University (SJU), outlining a long-term vision for the university leading up to their 150th anniversary in 2015. The process involved extensive consultation, site review, code review, and an overall analysis of broader campus conditions.

 

Development was proposed to take place in three phases that would see the addition of a new residence, renovation and expansion of the existing chapel, renovations to the main hall to create a central student hub and office area, and the addition of a new multi-purpose building with an extended courtyard. Following approval of the master plan, WalterFedy completed the schematic design phase of the new student residence.

   

NOTEWORTHY
DESIGN ELEMENTS

As SJU’s existing facilities faced considerable site and space constraints, there were considerable challenges in determining the most-efficient solutions. Of particular concern was the identification of conditions that restricted current student capacity and inhibit student service amenities, as well as those that limit the effectiveness of teaching environments and community social spaces.
