The Oglesby Union team along with our architects, Workshop Architects and Architects Lewis + Whitlock, and construction team, Ajax Building Corporation, are working hard to create the best student union possible for our community. This will be a transformative opportunity for our union to provide a center for student engagement, entertainment and leisure.
The new union will replace the current at 75 N Woodward Ave. This is happening as one phase; construction begins in summer of 2018 and the anticipated opening of the building is in 2020. Approximately 75% of the current Oglesby Union will be torn down over summer 2018 and replaced with new construction. The facilities that will remain are the Davis Building (Union Ballrooms and Food Court) and Moore Auditorium. The Davis building will undergo a renovation after the new construction is built. Moore Auditorium is not included in this Oglesby Union renovation project.
The new Oglesby Union will include features such as:
- Study and leisure spaces
- New expansive FSU Bookstore
- Large, state of the art ballrooms
- Flexible meeting spaces
- Synergistic student organization spaces
- New food destinations
- Brand new Crenshaw Lanes
- Brand new Club Downunder
- Brand new Art Center
- Brand new Market Wednesday plaza
Details of these plans will be finalized in the coming months as we get farther along in the project schedule. Keep an eye out for more graphic representation of our new union in the spring semester.
