The Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life

A modern and dramatic addition to Tulane University's architecture, the Lavin-Bernick Center establishes a new focal point for campus life. Expansive glass exterior walls create light-filled spaces and contribute to the building's feeling of open, spacious accessibility. Wrap-around balconies offer tranquil views of the Quad, futuristic ceiling fans calmly circulate the air, and water walls murmur in the background. The building's ambiance is designed to foster a feeling of connection and community. Designed in accordance with "open building concepts", the energy-efficient LBC contains 152,000 square feet of space - almost 40% more than the former University Center.

First FloorThe first floor features dining venues, a well-stocked bookstore, and additional retail space. Both the James Lounge and the Nalty Commons provide comfortable study and meeting areas. The attractive outdoor dining spaces remain available for student use after the restaurants close for the evening.

Rosenberg LoungeThe Rosenberg Lounge (pictured below), overlooking Pocket Park, provides plush couches, tables and chairs for student use. The LBC's Garden Level serves as the home to the offices of many university departments and student organizations as well as Der Rathskeller, a late night dining and performing venue.

Kendall Cram Lecture roomThe second floor features eleven conference rooms plus an elegant, glass-enclosed ballroom for the university's most special occasions. The Kendall Cram Lecture room pictured below, with its excellent acoustics, frequently hosts academic and cultural events. The magnificent redesigned and expanded 1834 Club (Faculty/Staff Dining Room) offers both buffet and seated dining options and hosts dinners with the Dean and Residential Colleges.
