Gianchetta Piazza


The Gianchetta Piazza is an open space on the second floor.  It is ideal for many purposes, including catered meal and beverage service, informal gatherings and as a space for conference sponsors to meet with your participants. It features large picture windows looking east to the campus and mountains and is accented by a large skylight with suspended art. This remarkably high ceiling gives the space a much larger feel than the actual dimensions would suggest.

Study Lounges

Our study lounges have brand new furnishings. Students appreciate these spaces for quiet study, and event or conference participants will appreciate these spaces to take breaks. They are located on the lower level, and the west lounge features a much admired installation by world-renowned ceramic artist Rudy Autio.
