Renovated student center provides bright front door to Wichita State University

Wichita State University Rhatigan Student Center Renovation

After serving the Wichita State University campus for more than 50 years, the Rhatigan Student Center (RSC) was in dire need of renovation and upgrades. It was increasingly apparent that areas of the building needed to be upgraded in an effort to continue to accommodate the students, faculty and staff.

Many existing areas of the RSC fell short of meeting its patrons’ needs including a lack of space for the growing departments, antiquated elevators, a lack of meeting space, deteriorating east patio, a lack of natural light in the building, need for more student lounge space, and aging infrastructure that was inefficient and antiquated.

This $26 million, 35,000-square-foot addition and 65,000-square-foot renovation included:

  • New “front door” to the campus
  • Additional lounge and gathering space
  • New meeting rooms
  • New conference space
  • Expanded ballroom
  • New office space for student organizations
