The Student Union features three interconnected levels of open areas that encourage its use as a key campus circulation element. A large stepped platform acts as a piazza within the main volume, providing circulation to the mezzanine above as well as seating on and below, while open lounge areas are distributed throughout with enclosed meeting rooms on the perimeter and a video room tucked away below the reception platform in what was previously a pool.
