Indoor public areas are a perfect place for having a quick conversation with someone or a short wait in between classes. They also reflect important areas for the campus community at large.
As an on-going effort, Campuscape identifies different indoor spaces that could either benefit from new soft seating or having the existing furniture updated.
John Brooks Williams (N) Natural Science Building
New seating for the study areas in JBWN was installed in the spring of 2020. The soft seating in the main lobby is powered so students and guests can relax while they recharge.

Holy Cross Hall
When Holy Cross Hall was restored in 2018, nooks for individual study and small study groups were created in a timeless design. In the words of architect Barton Baldridge, these small “living rooms” foster collaboration and study.
The character of the historic Main Building speaks for itself, and the corridors on each floor did not need much to elevate the space. The benches that were chosen are classic and functional.
St. André Apartments Grab & Goat Market
The lounge and study space at the Grab & Goat is designed to give students on campus an inviting place to gather for coffee, snacks and conversation 24 hours a day.
