Providence, RI – Vision 3 Architects is in the preliminary stages to design Roger Williams University’s new downtown Providence campus facility at One Empire Plaza. The 76,566sf program will provide expanded space for RWU’s School of Continuing Studies, School of Law, various graduate schools, and a growing array of outreach and engagement programs within the community. The university’s space, encompassing five floors of the building, includes a total of 17 flexible classroom spaces with capacities ranging from 30 to 50 seats. The facility integrates conference rooms, office space, and student break-out spaces together to foster student/faculty collaboration and interaction. The university’s new space is expected to be completed by May 2016.
