Webster University Opens Gateway Campus

Renewing their commitment to downtown, Webster University has become the anchor tenant in the historic Arcade building.

The new space will better serve those who live and work downtown. We will partner with the entrepreneurial community, add to downtown St. Louis vibrancy with leading edge academic programs such as Cybersecurity, Criminology, Legal Studies and others, and provide space for major speakers, art exhibitions, lunch-time learning, and community gatherings.
– Beth Stroble, President of Webster University

The Arcade Building was constructed in 1906 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. After the building was purchased in 2013 for redevelopment into apartments, Trivers conducted a design study to investigate Webster’s utilization in the Arcade. The results of the study assisted Webster in their decision to expand their downtown campus.

The new Gateway Campus creates a much-needed street-level presence in the core of the Central St. Louis Business District. The additional square footage provides a technology-rich environment in a highly visible location. The new space includes offices, classrooms, an auditorium, art museum and a bookstore/coffee shop. Students began classes in the new Gateway Campus in January. Trivers previously worked with Webster University on their classrooms located within the Old Post Office.
