Commons Survey

Conceptual Overview of Student Commons from 2nd Floor Mezzanine. (All finished are for conceptual purposes only and not for final design)

Pamplin students:

We have started construction the Data and Decision Sciences (D+DS) building, the first of four which will make up the Global Business and Analytics Complex (GBAC). Two of the GBAC buildings will be connected with a large student commons. I would like your input as we finalize the design and furnishings of the commons.

Take a look at the images below. It shows two ways that the same furniture could be used to accommodate everyday use and use for special events. This is not the final design or furniture. Please take the survey to help finalize the design. The survey will be open until April 2, 2021
