Gateway Project (2019 – 2024)

The Gateway Project – a state-funded capital project – fulfills GGC’s need for an infrastructure upgrade that includes a central energy plant (CEP) expansion and a multi-use Gateway Center that will serve as a student-centered facility offering the following uses.

  • Student services related to student health, wellness and recreation
  • Flexible use rooms to support both formal and informal learning and collaboration
  • Venue to host large-scale campus events, including but not limited to all-inclusive campus faculty and staff meetings, commencement ceremonies, large student gatherings, large future student orientations, and, potentially, future athletic competitions

The CEP makes up 15% of the Gateway Project and will supply the chilled water to the HVAC systems for the buildings that surround the GGC Lawn.
