Student Lounge

The student lounge–officially named the Harkness Lounge--is used before and after classes by students of all levels. The room features four computer terminals with internet access and ample space for stretching, socializing and studying. The Registrar's office, a popular destination for prospective and current students, sits just off the lounge.
