 Ground Floor & Public Spaces 

The main floor hosts a public classroom space where many LLC students will attend class and programs together, faculty offices for residence hall office hours, tv/gaming areas, study rooms with individual study pods, and a large community space. Java City and The Spread are located on the main floor, featuring coffee, sandwiches, and other grab-and-go items.



The lobby provides public and residential access to the building. The residential entrance is locked and has a 24-hour security and information desk. Guests can enter the public classroom through the main entrance lobby.


 Residential Commons 

The Residential Commons are located on the ground floor of the building. The commons are separated from the lobby so that access to the commons may be restricted to building residents or opened to non-residents during certain hours. The Residential Commons includes the following spaces: reception desk, package storage room, vertical circulation, staff offices, laundry, study rooms, and open community areas. 


 Outdoor Space

A large green space is located behind Regents Hall that provides opportunities for student connection and special programming.
