Thank you for your interest in our forthcoming renovations. I want to make sure you are aware that in our atrium renovation we actually increased available seating by 62%. You can read about the changes in this earlier article about that project:
In our upcoming Summer 2017 projects, we will be converting Wilson 6 to a faculty area. However, at the same time we are creating the “Scholars Commons” on Reynolds 4 in the area now known as “Gov Docs.” The seating in this area will be over 100 seats which is an increase for that area. So there will be no loss of seats, and the new ones will be a big improvement! You can see a rendering of the planned space here.
