Located at the heart of the university, the new USC Ronald Tutor Campus Center is used by virtually every student, professor and administrator who passes through campus.
As Interior Architect, Chu ¬ Gooding provided the design for nearly 26,000 sq. ft. of food service and entertainment areas, including a food court / dining hall, convenience store, and a full-service restaurant — all within USC’s prescribed exterior Romanesque building style.
The program also included two adjacent underground venues: Traditions Bar & Grill and Tommy’s Place, a student entertainment center.
