Gardner-Webb University Tucker Student Center


  • Spanning three floors, the center offers convenient access to nearly every student life resource including Student Development, Christian Life and Service, Student Leadership Development, Student Government Association, Student Success Center, Post Office and Campus Store


  • The facility features several themed restaurants, a coffee shop, multiple study lounges with indoor/outdoor fireplaces on each level, game and billiards room, activity spaces, a movie theater, classrooms, campus art gallery, a three-story climbing wall and Stewart Hall—a large 500+ seat capacity lecture and event hall, that includes the largest operable Skyfold system in North Carolina

  • The signature design feature includes a central three-story atrium—complete with a full skylight ceiling, glass walls and multiple large concourses connecting to other areas of the Student Union

  • During the ribbon cutting event in August 2012, Dr. Frank Bonner (President of GWU) opened the ceremony by saying, “The Tucker Student Union is the most transformational and significant building constructed on campus in the history of the University.”
