Atrium Expansion Now Open

We are pleased to announce the opening of the Atrium Expansion, a three-story addition to the Law School’s Rubloff Atrium. The new space includes additional study areas; Savner Hall, a 25-seat classroom that incorporates state-of-the-art technology to enhance the teaching and learning experience; and an expanded café with more than 50 indoor and outdoor seating options.

The Law School and University Facilities Management teams partnered with architects from Holabird & Root, the firm that designed the Arthur Rubloff building, to create the addition. Construction began in February 2014.

View the videos below to learn more about the construction process and the vision for the completed space. The Atrium Expansion was also a featured project on our glass vendor's website.
