Hales Lobby Gets a Makeover
At any given moment of the day, pass through the Hales Lobby in the Basic Sciences Building and you’ll likely find it filled with students enjoying the newly renovated space—studying, socializing or just relaxing.
The freshly painted and carpeted space has been reconfigured to accommodate seating for 80 with a combination of couches, ottomans, tables and chairs including high-tops and seating booths.
In addition, the space was renovated to include 24 new electrical outlets and 20 USB outlets. The NYMC community can also utilize two new standalone charging stations with the capacity to charge eight phones each—one in the Hales Lobby and the other in the Health Sciences Library.
“Our vision for Hales Lobby was to achieve clean, modern comfort—an aesthetically pleasing space, but more importantly, a comfortable and welcoming collaboration, study and meeting space. The end result is indicative of what we hope to deliver through subsequent renovations in our effort to make the NYMC campus an even more welcoming place to learn, live and work,” said Sarah Cottet, executive director, facilities management and capital planning.
