Higher Education

For more than 35 years, Woolpert has partnered with universities across the country to develop dynamic living-learning environments. Colleges and universities are often the vanguard of social and cultural change. Our higher education architecture honors institutional traditions and integrates emerging technologies and trends into meaningful architecture that anticipates the way students, faculty, and the community-at-large will interact with our designs. Fresh, engaging and environmentally friendly campus designs resonate with today’s college students, attracting and retaining learners from around the world. That’s why our full spectrum of architecture, engineering, and geospatial services is as well-suited to preserving and highlighting campus history as it is to creating high-tech educational buildings, NCAA-caliber athletic facilities, and some of the most sought-after student housing in the country.
