The goal of this project is a renovation and expansion of existing student facilities within Weill Cornell’s main campus. The creation of the new Feil Family Student Center will accommodate the students’ need for more dedicated student space and amenities as well as modernize the educational space and infrastructure in order to bring it up to par with peer institutions. Phase 1 of the project involved the construction of 5 new classrooms as well as student gathering space. Each classroom features flexible room configurations and enhanced information technology capabilities. Phase 2 will encompass 12,500 SF of space and will involve the creation a new Educational and Student center, referred to as the “Student Hearth”, which will feature a new steel and glass staircase creating a better connection between the Library and the new education spaces. The Student Hearth will have a lounge and flexible meetings rooms that will be available for use by students as well as use for educational and recreational purposes.
