The renovated Bear Down Building is the heart of the District, which is intentionally designed to encourage augmentation and expansion of learning that occurs in the classroom. Inspired by student input, we are committed to ensuring that the district provides all students with seamless access to the resources and expertise they need to reach their academic and career goals. The Bear Down Building houses student support services and programs, study spaces, and health and wellness facilities.


Student Support Services

The Bear Down Building renovation was completed in spring 2022. It's the home to a wide range of services and spaces for students, including:

Career Support and Engagement Opportunities

The University of Arizona is committed to supporting students in all things career, whether that's creating a career plan, developing in-demand skills, or securing career opportunities. The following services are available in the Bear Down Building

Health and Wellness

An 1,800-square-foot fitness room equipped with the latest cardio equipment and gear and other amenities serve our students, as well as faculty and staff who have memberships. To support holistic and spiritual wellness, the University has dedicated the institution's first interfaith and serenity spaces. This is also part of the University’s efforts to drive the value and practice of diversity and inclusion.
