Uris Library Cocktail Lounge Ready for a New Generation!

In 1982, Uris Library's new addition opened. Carved out of Libe Slope, it featured panoramic windows with glorious western views and very comfortable seating. It soon became known as the "Cocktail Lounge," a popular spot for late-night studying and the occasional nap. In 2019, the well-loved room underwent a renovation to renew furnishings and equipment and make it more accessible. Students chose the furniture for its practicality and comfort, and have made it an even more popular study space, now open 24 hours. This exhibition focuses on the design and renovation process.
