The Gateway at The University of Toledo is conducting a survey for UT students enrolled for spring semester regarding the development on the corner of Secor Road and Dorr Street.

Students who complete the survey will be eligible to win an iPad mini for sharing their opinions on the development, mix of businesses at Gateway, and what establishments they would like to see in the future.

“This survey is designed to be a mid-term checkup,” said Matt Schroeder, vice president for real estate and business development at the UT Foundation. “We want to receive feedback from students before they hunker down for finals and graduation. Their thoughts on Gateway are very important to us given the student-centered nature of the multi-phase redevelopment initiative.”

The University has been marketing the remaining two retail spaces, Schroeder said, while preparing for Huntington Bank to open in Gateway this July. Ideally, the remaining 4,900 square feet of retail space will be leased prior to the 2013-14 academic year, he said.

The survey was sent to all student Rocket email accounts March 13 and will be posted until Wednesday, March 27. So far, more than 1,500 students have completed the survey, Schroeder said.

“The survey is important in terms of how we market the project and plan for future phases,” he said. “Results will be analyzed by Institutional Research and used as guideposts in terms of where we are in the student’s eyes.

“The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete and will help our team to remain focused on current and future phases and opportunities,” Schroeder said. “From the very first sketches visioning the project, Gateway is intended to fulfill the needs brought to us by students.”
