Engaging Spaces for
Students and Guests
T
he Student Center renovation, cov-
ering some 98,000 square feet, has
created new space for the Student
Government and Student Activities offices,
“pocket” lounges throughout the building for
student collaboration, and conference and
meeting facilities overlooking the Hudson
River. In addition, a new theatre lounge
adjacent to the Nelly Goletti Theatre
offers an attractive and convenient area
for receptions. The Student Center’s new
and improved lower level features a large
exercise studio, meeting space, expanded
lounge space for commuter students, and
an outdoor patio.
The final piece of this ambitious con-
struction project has been the recladding
of the Student Center rotunda with a stone
veneer. This project remedies the dete-
rioration of the former stone facing and
reflects the aesthetic of the new building,
library, and Hancock Center.
