The Student Services Building at Morgan State University is a new mixed-use project built by Barton Malow that provides facilities for admissions, registration, career development, financial aid, and various other administration services.
Heart of Campus
With an overall area of approximately 142,000 SF, the building consists of offices, training spaces, tour rooms, study areas, food services, and building support spaces. The facility is located in the heart of campus on a site previously occupied by The Soper Library. The new structure is four stories tall with a mechanical penthouse level. This project achieved LEED Gold through the U.S. Green Building Council.
A Gateway Between Communities
Reflecting Morgan State’s identity as a premier HBCU and Maryland’s designated public urban university, a key focus was to create a gateway building that embodies the university’s heritage, identity, and mission. This included forging stronger connections between the University, the local community, and the City of Baltimore. The building’s signature location bridges the gap between the historic and modern precincts of the campus and the nearby residential community. Morgan State required a progressive and captivating design that could graciously welcome current and prospective students, families, and visitors.
