The Trone Student Center is a comfortable place for our students to meet, eat, chat and hang out. The student center provides ample meeting space, a 110-inch video screen in the Hill Atrium, comfortable seating, a pub-style restaurant, spectacular views of Furman Lake and other features that benefit our students.

The 96,000-square foot building integrates academics and student life. Our student organizations—ranging in everything from student government to student media—are housed here. The center is also home to a number of important student resources, including the Center for Inclusive Communities, the Malone Center for Career Engagement and the Center for Engaged Learning. Whether you’re interested in eating, socializing or studying for an exam, visit the Trone Student Center.
