MYRTLE BEACH — Coastal Carolina University’s Lib Jackson Student Center is getting a 39,000-square-foot addition to the existing building, according to a news release from the university. The project, budgeted at $12 million, is the first of two annexes planned for the student center.
Annex I will include a movie theater/auditorium, conference rooms, retail services and lounge space, as well as areas for student organizations to assemble. A courtyard area between the existing center and Annex I will include an area for entertainment venues. The front facade of the current student center will be remodeled to include a rotunda lobby and lounge.
University departments that will move into the new annex include Student Activities, Multicultural Student Services, International Student Services and Career Services.
The proposed Annex II will contain a large event space and conference areas, as well as additional lounge space for students.
