Airport Lounge, Bridge Cafe, and Upper RCC

The Airport Lounge

Airport LoungeLocated on the upper floor of the Johnson Library Center, the Airport Lounge was renovated in spring 2002 by a group of students who felt the need for a space on campus where students could convene at night and have access to computers, wireless Internet, and free coffee service.

In 2006, with input from students and Community Council, the space was renovated into its current configuration.
