McDonogh School Student Center

Owings Mills, MD

The new Edward St. John Student Center on the campus of the McDonogh School, a coeducational day and boarding school, works to establish the southern edge of a new campus quadrangle while also becoming the school’s new “front door”.
  • Its entry hall provides a transition from the front door to the new quad and organizes all the building’s program elements around it.
  • The new 72,000 sf Student Center provides a variety of campus dining spaces, including a 650-seat grand Dining Hall.
  • There are also facilities for student services, administration and the visual and performing arts programs.
  • Designed to fit within the context of the oldest buildings on campus, the Student Center features a grand copper cupola, chimneys, red brick and grey stone.
Bowie Gridley Architects was also selected to provide design services for a new STEM education building and renovations to other buildings.
