Caruso School of Law Auditorium and Atrium Remodel

Project Description

The contemplated work will renovate the Caruso Auditorium, upgrading this area to a large, modernly appointed, divisible space. New movable partitions will be installed, and it will be complemented by state-of-the-art learning technology and audio-visual equipment. Also included are new furniture and finishes, lighting and acoustical updates, ADA accessibility upgrades, and additional and expanded restroom facilities in close proximity to the auditorium.

The project also refurbishes and modernizes the two-level Smith Atrium, beautifying the main entrance and central hall, improving connectivity between the two levels, and enhancing these areas as hubs for interaction, activity, and student use. Infrastructure upgrades are planned as well.
