Common Areas

Atrium Cafe Plaza

The law school’s beautiful atrium provides a great place for natural light and a central location in the building for your event.  

The Lower One Commons is home to the Sidebar Café and features a cozy fireplace area under the staircase. This multi-purpose space is primarily used for tabling sessions or lunchtime gathering but can be transformed into a banquet floor for dinners and reception.

This outdoor venue provides an enclosed space that is great for receptions and reunions. It is located on the east side and is surrounded on three sides by the building, allowing for a semi-private event. The space has access to power and already has a few picnic tables available. More tables and chairs can be provided by the law school or UM Facilities at an extra cost.
