About this Case Study


Montclair University is a public research university nestled in suburban Montclair, NJ with over 21,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Established in 1908, it is home to Red Hawk students from all over the country and the world, as it is often listed as one of the top 100 public universities in the U.S.

With thousands of students and administrative staff depending on MSU facilities, the university decided that it needed a temporary swing space until renovations on its existing Admissions and Bursar buildings were complete. Through the use of the National Intergovernmental Purchasing Alliance contract (National IPA), and their sole temporary space provider WillScot, MSU was able to promptly acquire the modular space they needed.


After approximately 120 days, MSU’s Admissions and Bursar offices were fully relocated to ten temporary Redi-Plex units close to the previous location of the buildings and equipped with all the requested financial and security needs. MSU’s ten units were transformed into 26 offices, two bathrooms and a cash room. The space was also furnished with The Essentials for added convenience and safety, including roll up security screens, cash drawers, safes, steps, ramps, a panic button, desks, chairs and panelized walls for additional workspace.
