A fresh new space and functionalityAs the main gathering place for the Law School community, the Robert B. Aikens Commons fills a previously unused space between buildings on the Quad. It is covered by a glass and steel roof that affords breathtaking views of the surrounding stone walls and leaded glass windows. Aikens Commons has two levels: a main floor with a café and a variety of seating options, and a lower level, designed with student social needs in mind. This beautiful, functional gathering place is poised to become the new heart of the Law School.
