Providence College Campus Project Updates

11/22/2016 - Arthur & Patricia Ryan Center for Business Studies - Gothic Arch Installed

The “gothic arch” installed at the west entrance of the new Arthur and Patricia Ryan School for Business Studies was designed with a couple of different purposes in mind.  The architects at SMMA, while designing the building, were looking for a way to link the traditional  gothic architecture of Harkins Hall with the more contemporary design of what will become the signature building of the newly integrated  east campus.  The Ryan School of Business’ tower at the west entry along with the newly installed gothic arch, continues the design rhythm of Harkins Hall that the architects in 1917 used to inspire the most iconic building on the campus.

The arch at the Ryan Center is a free standing 18 foot wide structure standing 30 feet high and weighing approximately 5 tons.  It will serve as the location for the building name​​ which will be installed within the coming week.  The arch outline will be lit with “LED”  lighting concealed in the steel flange facing west. 


11/17/2016 - Tree Inventory Management - Oak Tree for Smith Quad coming this spring

A red oak tree from a local nursey has been found for planting in the Smith quad.  Unfortunately red oaks cannot be dug up in the fall so the site has been prepared for planting in this spring.  In the meantime, we have laid sod to keep the site attractive.
