The Arrival District will dramatically connect the entry of campus off Interstate 44 to the main academic campus through a series of landscape and building projects that also includes making synergistic connections to adjacent districts. The realignment of University Drive will unlock opportunities for the development of new space north of the realigned University Drive as well as south of University Drive and west of Highway 63 in the area currently providing off-campus housing units and retail services.
The Arrival District will provide S&T a front door fitting of its academic reputation. Key new facilities will support the goals of the arrival district and serve to reflect the energy and innovation of the University out to campus visitors and passersby. The associated landscape, site and wayfinding interventions will create a much safer and more amenitized environment for the campus community.
