Campus Entry

The approach to any campus creates a lasting first impression, a feeling of welcome or confusion that is critical for potential students who often make a decision about an institution within minutes of their arrival. A positive sense of arrival is missing on the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus.

Recommendations that emerged from the master planning process suggest UW-Green Bay has an opportunity to develop an entry sequence and ar-rival point that welcomes users--whether visitors to campus, prospective students, or returning alumni. The Plan explores the site-scale design of an entry concept that includes a traditional campus quad and a student gathering area.

Campus Entry

The conceptual design of a new entry is the product of numerous conversations about the welcoming potential of campus. The entry beckons as a destination point to visitors and prospective students, creates close-by accessible parking, and connects the entry to the heart of the academic core through a campus quad. The campus entry design also allows for physical expansion of the University Union and connection to existing utilities and infrastructure.
