Florida A&M University Center For Access & Student Success Building

FAMU’s new Center for Access and Student Success (CASS) will be a multipurpose building housing space for student recruitment, admissions, financial aid and student accounts, while also maintaining offices for the Center for Disability Access & Resources and the Undergraduate Student Success Center.  CASS will also maintain space for computer labs, study areas, student meeting areas, a police sub-station, and possibly auxiliary space and Veterans services.

To make space for the 73,000 square foot Center, the site development will require all or partial demolition of Diamond and McGuinn dormitory halls and new construction.  The project is projected to be completed in multiple phases contingent on funding with a goal have open for the Fall 2018 semester.
