Entry & Guard House, Mississippi University for Women

Starkville, MS

Project Description

The main part of MUW’s campus faces College street, however, no entrance existed on that side of campus.  The goals of this project were to provide an entrance to be the focal point along with added security and lighting, as well as improved access in and out of campus.  JBHM provided fencing around the entire campus based on an existing historic fence, which is located along the front of campus. Both vehicular and pedestrian entrances are electronic and can be accessed with student ID cards.  A new entrance road was also created on the north side of campus along with a gatehouse that match the historic character of campus.
