What Faculty and Staff Can Discover at the Transformed Schine Student Center
It’s called the “Hildegarde and J. Myer Schine Student Center,” but the newly transformed building offers a place for faculty, staff and all the members of the University community to gather, eat, socialize, work and more.
Please note: during the pandemic, Schine Student Center has implemented health and safety protocols to adhere to public health guidelines.
From Decaf to Discounts
Seasoned campus citizens have known it as the Bookstore, but along with its continued focus on academic resources, the renamed and reimagined Campus Store has new University-branded apparel, a late-night food and grocery market and a Dunkin’ coffee stand off the center atrium. One thing hasn’t changed—faculty and staff get a 10 percent discount on many items. The Campus Store also offers education-priced computers and accessories.
Why Brown Bag?
Buffalo chicken twists, loaded fries and gourmet pastries are just some of new items satisfying cravings at Schine’s renovated food court. Eateries include a mix of local and national dining concepts, including CoreLife, The Halal Shack, Panda Express, Biscotti Café, Chocolate Pizza Company and The Tomato Wheel. Enjoy it all in one of the new dining “booth boxes” or countertop seats.
My Kingdom for a Computer
Remembered your phone, keys and wallet, but not your computer? The Schine has the resources you need to be productive. Email stations are located throughout the building and available to faculty and staff while on campus. See ITS Computer Labs for information.
Need Some Space?
With Schine’s renovation, faculty and staff have access to many new and upgraded spaces throughout the building. To reserve space for meetings, conferences, receptions and other events, fill out the online reservation request form.
How About Some Quiet?
The Panasci Lounge is the go-to for faculty and staff interested in a quieter place to work or just decompress. The informal space is furnished with comfortable lounge furniture and tables and chairs. Wireless access points allow you to connect your laptop to the Internet and wireless printing.
Accessibility has been enhanced throughout the building, with automatic door openers, smooth floor transitions, upgrades to existing elevators, a fully accessible path through the building from Waverly Ave to the Einhorn Walk, new fully accessible restrooms, counter heights and work surfaces made universally accessible and accessible wayfinding signage.
