Sundt Construction has recently begun construction on the University of Arizona Student Success District, an interconnected district on the university’s Tucson campus that will provide indoor and outdoor spaces.

The project includes the renovation of the Main Library, the Science-Engineering Library, and the Bear Down Gym. A new four-story student success building is also part of the project. The goal of the new district is to encourage students to move between the collection of interconnected spaces and take advantage of the full range of services offered.
