The Mary Lou and John Barter Student Center

Spring Hill College’s Student Center opened in May 2010 as the third and final anchor of the Rydex Commons, where the Marnie and John Burke Memorial Library engages the mind and St. Joseph Chapel nurtures the spirit. The Mary Lou and John Barter Student Center was dedicated in October 2016, As the gathering place for the entire College community, the Student Center connects students, faculty and staff to out-of-class learning and social and leadership development. The center has achieved silver-level Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Green building practices can substantially reduce or eliminate negative environmental impacts. As an added benefit, green design measures reduce operating costs, enhance building marketability, increase occupant productivity and well being. In an effort to remind students, faculty, staff and visitors of the importance of sustaining our world, the new student center also features informational wall exhibits on sustainability.

Features and highlights of the facility include:

  • A modern dining area
  • McKinney’s at The Hill
  • Student Affairs administrative offices
  • Campus Ministry offices
  • Information center
  • Computer center with WiFi
  • Student Organization Resource Center
  • Several meeting rooms available to the campus community
  • Multi-purpose rooms for both educational and social programs
  • A 300-person capacity event space
