TU South Entrance
Status: Project Complete
TU's new south entrance, located off of 11th Street along historic Route 66, provides a dramatic welcome to TU's 200-acre residential campus. Components of the entrance project include the five-acre Chapman Commons, the Genave King Rogers Fountain, and Tucker Drive, the new oval drive that encircles these projects. Completed portions of the south entrance project include Collins Hall, Bayless Plaza and student apartment complexes of Lorton Village and Mayo Village. A tree-lined, brick walkway lines both sides of the Chapman Commons to accommodate foot traffic.
Chapman Commons provides a picturesque campus entrance, but also facilitates outdoor gatherings both small and large. On football game days, Chapman Commons is the primary site for TU tailgate parties.
