To keep pace with a growing student body, the College of William & Mary partnered with Clark Nexsen to expand and renovate Sadler Dining Hall, part of the 122,330 square foot Student Center that serves as the social hub of campus. This project involved increasing choice in both menu and seating to provide students with the type of options they prefer, maintaining and enhancing the facility’s appeal as a center of student life.

The renovation and addition relocated the dining hall entry to facilitate student access, added 300 seats, provided new cooking stations including a brick pizza oven and a Mongolian grill, upgraded the kitchen space, and updated finishes to the existing dining area to enhance the sense of place and dining experience. In addition to the new fresh food cooking stations, the dining hall features a variety of seating options ranging from club-like gathering areas to intimate banquets and quick turnover table tops as well as a separate area that can be closed off to create a fun, late-night student destination.
