Kranitz Student Center (KSC) Renovation Project

A major enhancement and the visual “Front Door” to the Union Hills campus– the $8.5 million, 59,500 square foot renovation and 11,500 square foot expansion of the Gina Kranitz Student Center officially opened on September 17, 2013. The project includes a stunning new architectural entry-way, a new Welcome Center for integrated student enrollment services, and a new 4,000 square foot community room and open plaza for meetings and public events. Other features: a new Veterans’ Services office, whose mission is to assist veterans to navigate the college experience; an updated Puma Den Café and lounge; a student game room; additional modern conference rooms with integrated technology; an expanded testing/assessment center; several computers for student use. The KSC renovation incorporated energy efficiencies in its updated HVAC system, interior materials and lighting systems. As part of the KSC redesign, the 34th Street / Michigan Avenue road through campus was re-conceptualized and landscaped to enhance the open, welcoming atmosphere PVCC aimed for with this renovation.
