Chartwells Dining Services is funding renovations to Café 101 where the servery and dining room will be upgraded and expanded with new equipment and additional serving stations to provide more menu options and better traffic flow. Dining area renovations will include new furniture and new flooring and the addition of a Starbucks kiosk as a late night option for students. A new lounge space will be available in the entrance to the Birnbaum Library that students can use as additional dining and study space.
Thanks to the contributions of an anonymous donor, by this September, the One Pace Plaza courtyard will be beautifully renovated with new garden areas that will have adjourning wooden benches. Additional flexible seating options will be available and a contemporary new water fountain will be featured. A secured entrance to the courtyard will now be accessible through Spruce Street for easier access.
Façade and Campus Improvements
On the NYC Campus, the One Pace Plaza façade will undergo a restoration. The courtyard façade of the east building will be cleaned and loose stones and panels will be secured. There will also be aesthetic improvements to several student rooms at the 106 Fulton Street residence hall. Administrative space on the 8th floor of 156 William Street will be completed this Fall. In PLV, the Goldstein Academic Center and Willcox Hall will be painted and cleaned. In addition, North Hall, will be cleaned, painted, and see other façade improvements such as new shutters to all windows and renovations to the stairs entrance.
Students and faculty will see major enhancements to the classroom spaces this Fall. Technology improvements include more than ten new Smartboards in our classrooms and installation of the UB-T880W Panaboard in classrooms across all campuses. The Panaboard is a revolutionary multi-touch interactive whiteboard with a durable surface. Check out this video for a demonstration of the Panaboard. On the PLV Campus, Miller and Lienhard halls will feature all new window treatment that will support the technology in the classrooms. New shades will be installed in each classroom that will not only improve the look of the room and exterior façade but will function better with the technology in these buildings. The faculty lounge in Miller Hall will also get a fresh new look.
