The Pavilion will be located on the south side of the Oceans and Coastal Studies Building, between the building’s courtyard and the waterfront. The building will restore valuable waterfront event space that was lost during the reconstruction of the campus marina and will include a multipurpose room that will accommodate 150 people in banquet seating and nearly 275 people in theater seating. Unique to this new building will be its indoor/outdoor capability. Much of the glass exterior windows will be designed to fold which will extend the indoor space outdoors to an open air deck that will accommodate an additional 50-100 seats, depending on event setup.
In addition, the project will also include an outdoor amphitheater that can further extend the space of the pavilion, or also be used as a seperate venue for outdoor events.
Cost: $5.0 million
Project will be funded through campus resources, including a $1 million capital investment from Chartwells.
Anticipated Groundbreak: Fall 2016
