Other Dining Halls

The layout of Lower Right, Upper Right and Upper Left has remained close to Commons’s previous design but has also received upgrades. Furniture in the dining halls has been replaced with flexible tables that are designed to seat four or six people. The new tables will occupy less space than the old ones, a change that will allow the dining halls to seat more students. The tables are designed to stack together and flip to the side in order to clear room for social functions. This too will help make up for the difference in space compared to Uncommons. The furniture was chosen with acoustics in mind. The old wooden tables and chairs, currently in use in Uncommons, make much louder noises when moved. Sound=absorbing panels were also installed to further reduce noise levels in the new Commons. Other improvements included refurbishing chandeliers and cleaning walls and molding.
