Special Features

Traditional campus buildings have a single purpose. Academic buildings hold classrooms, laboratories, and lecture halls for formal learning. The library is a quiet space for studying. In most cases, residence halls are even further removed from the heart of academic life. CBU’s Living Learning Center, on the other hand, purposefully combines a seminar and meeting classroom, integrated socialization and study spaces, a faculty Learning Community Director’s office, and a large social gathering and event lounge with a traditional dormitory.

The Living Learning Center at CBU offers an environment uniquely designed to nurture the expectation that education happens everywhere. This new, multi-purpose Center includes:

  • Premium residence hall accommodations
  • Public spaces (Commons) on each floor for both formal and informal gatherings
  • Fully-equipped serving kitchen for special events
  • Classroom/Meeting room/Group Study room on main floor
  • Exterior patio with firepit and seating accessible from the Main Commons
  • Quiet study spaces
  • Game and video areas
  • Laundry and recycling facilities on each floor
  • “CBU Green” features such as electric car charging stations, recycled construction materials, occupancy sensors, low-flow toilet fixtures, mechanical system sensors, etc.
