Features

Pursuing a sustainability goal of LEED Silver certification, the media library, located on the second floor of the west wing, has large windows that maximize natural daylighting from the center courtyard. The library is vertically connected to the first-floor reading room and lounge that provides a quiet area for students to relax with friends or study in groups.
