New Dining Commons
GET READY FOR OUR "BIG REVEAL"
Western New England University is proud to announce our new Dining Commons coming in 2017!
This stunning student destination will rise four stories on the Sleith lawn side of the St. Germain Campus Center and feature a rounded façade and a soaring glass atrium for a bright and welcoming entrance.
The first floor of the dining commons will include a retail mall with a Starbucks®, grill and sandwich restaurant, bakery, lounge areas for students, and a dining and performance space that will be used for a variety of non-academic purposes including food preparation classes for students and staff, poetry readings, and entertainment.
The second and third floors will hold the main student dining halls. The fourth floor will include adjustable conference and meeting rooms, and a large outdoor terrace.
Along with the new dining hall, the project includes the relocation of one campus parking lot and the addition of another, with an overall addition of more that 100 new parking spaces.
The current dining facilities are housed in the St. Germain Campus Center, which will be renovated in the near future, and will accommodate an expanded Career Development Center, along with Academic Advising, the First Year Program, and additional student activity space. A skywalk will connect the two buildings.
So, stay tuned, we can't wait to show you our "Big Reveal"!
