Gathering Spaces


The atrium of Cornell Hall is the focal point of its interior. Located on the first floor, the atrium is a comfortable gathering space for Trulaske students. Rising above the atrium are windows to faculty offices and the balconies of the four floors above.

Also in the atrium, a 16-foot digital display is used to communicate upcoming speaker events, case competitions, student workshops, business related newsfeeds, and other Trulaske events and opportunities. This area also features an integrated sound system for special events. When Trulaske hosts a high-profile speaker in Bush Auditorium, the atrium can be used as an overflow space for live-streaming of the event.

Scattered throughout the lounge furniture of the atrium are public computers and mobile device charging stations.

Public Workstations

Scattered throughout the lower floors of Cornell Hall are public computers and printers for student use. These workstations are configured for quick student access in both standing and seated arrangements. They feature a full installation of office productivity applications.

Conference rooms

On the upper floors of Cornell Hall, conference rooms are a keystone of productivity. These technology-enhanced spaces are configured for small group collaboration and feature large screen displays, full-use computers with office productivity software, videoconferencing technology, and whiteboards. 

Breakout rooms

On the first and second floors of Cornell Hall, students can find seven technology-enhanced small group collaboration spaces. These rooms can be reserved using the walk-up scheduling device located outside of each space. Inside these breakout rooms, students are empowered to wirelessly share content to a large display using Mersive Solstice.

These spaces are versatile and are also used for interview opportunities with employers, group projects and case competitions.
