  • Innovation and study space for student group work

  • 16 6-person study rooms
  • Individual study spaces throughout the building
  • Space for student organizations and graduate assistants
  • A large atrium with seating space and a coffee shop
  • A student services office with space for 20 advisers, a reception area, conference room and staff offices
  • Space for the Entrepreneurship Center
  • 90 faculty & staff offices
