Two New Beautiful Outdoor Spaces On Campus To Enjoy!
Over the summer two outdoor spaces were transformed into wonderful, inviting spots to be enjoyed by students, faculty, staff, alumni and other visitors to campus. Completed in time for the start of the fall semester, they've both already become hot spots on campus.
We invite you to take a stroll through The Park on Collins, a new beautiful urban park located along the USF Tampa Library's south facade. Kick back on one of the swings, enjoy your lunch at one of the tables under the expansive sun shade, or even soak your feet in the relaxing fountain!
Across campus, come discover the West Pond Pavilion! Located on the west side of campus adjacent to Simmons Park (southwest of FAH), the West Pond Pavilion is another new outdoor space that provides a tranquil and shaded area for students, faculty, staff and visitors to enjoy our beautiful campus.
New Student Preview Room A Showcase For The USF Tampa Campus
Facilities Planning & Construction (FPC) and Physical Plant's Facilities Enhancement (FE) collaborated on turning empty space on the 7th floor of the Interdisciplinary Science and Research Teaching Facility (ISA) into a showcase for the USF Campus.
The transformed space will be used by Undergraduate Admissions as part of their campus tour experience. The space has magnificent views of the campus that are sure to be enjoyed by prospective and admitted students, as well as their families. The space features large graphics, interactive video screens, vibrant colors, and modern furnishings that will appeal to this audience. View the photos of this fantastic space.
Completion Of The USF Sun Dome Renovation
If you've driven past the USF Sun Dome recently, you can't help but notice the new look. The $36 million dollar project has completely transformed the 10,000 seat arena. The Sun Dome was completed in May 2012 in time for the spring commencement which was the first official event to be held in the newly renovated facility.
The entire facility has been transformed from floor to roof. See images of the construction process and completed renovation.
