The student experience at the University of Arizona involves many areas of student life: academics, social activities, health and well-being, and more.

Students now have a single place to go, at the heart of campus, to find services and support in all these areas.

On April 13, University leaders celebrated the grand opening of the Student Success District, a nine-acre span of four buildings that house resources students need to thrive, including library services, learning support, tutoring, advising, mentoring, career services and health programs.

The district connects the Main Library, the Albert B. Weaver Science-Engineering Library, Bear Down Building and the Bartlett Academic Success Center. Three of the buildings – both libraries and Bear Down Building, formerly known as Bear Down Gymnasium – underwent extensive renovations, while the Bartlett Academic Success Center, a new building, was completed in late 2020.
