A Unique and Accommodating Building Upgrade for Hungry Students

Colorado Mesa University, Tomlinson Library Renovation and Dining Addition, Grand Junction, CO

Colorado Mesa University (CMU) took a revolutionary approach when renovating the Tomlinson Library — blending a library with a retail dining facility. The University set out to modernize the 1980s building by offering a variety of study spaces, including learning commons, research areas, student services, high-density stacks, exhibit space, a 24-hour study and spaces geared towards students with children. These elements, paired with the dining area, provide 95,600 sf of unique and accommodating space, with all the services students need in one place.
