Huntsman Hall to feature another student lounge adjoined to café

The current student lounge in our building is about 1,800 square feet. When Huntsman Hall is complete, there will be an additional 3,000 square feet of lounge area.

As I mentioned two weeks ago, Huntsman Hall will include a café. There will be about 900 square feet of seating to go with the café. Neighboring the café will be an additional student lounge that will be approximately 2,100 square feet. Students will have the option of picking up food at the café and meandering to the lounge to discuss projects and upcoming tests with their classmates.

One of the architectural firms that is designing our new building is Seattle-based LMN Architects. They designed PACCAR Hall for the Foster School of Business at the University of Washington. The picture at the right shows an image taken of PACCAR Hall’s student lounge area and café. Our lounge/café will be along the same lines.

The current student lounge isn’t going anywhere either. So with the completion of Huntsman Hall, there will be nearly 5,000 square feet of space for students to lounge, eat and prepare for upcoming class assignments.
