Wise Campus Center
Norwich’s social hub
Exterior doors will remain unlocked through 10:00 p.m. Monday through Friday through the ten weeks of Summer Sessions, beginning 1 June 2015.
Available public study spaces include:
- Ground floor: The Mill and the computer kiosk lounge area
- First floor: Fishbowl Lounge (WCC 133)
- Second floor: Rook Lounge (WCC 202) and Skybox Lounge
The 71,000-square-foot Wise Campus Center is the center of life for the Norwich community.
The WCC is modern in both appearance and functionality — students, staff and faculty can connect to the wireless network, grab a quick meal at the Mill snack bar or catch a film in one of the many meeting spaces.
The center provides benefits associated with a small-college lifestyle — quiet sitting areas with fireplaces, faculty and student lounges, a recreation area and top-notch dining. Other amenities include a Dunkin’ Donuts shop, Partridge’s Pub for faculty, staff and students aged 21 and older, a bookstore and multiple meeting spaces.
During warmer months, the dining terrace offers a cool spot to enjoy an iced coffee or lighter fare. The adjacent quad becomes the university’s recreation hot-spot — great for a game of Frisbee or a little people-watching. When the weather turns cold, the quad features a skating rink with an external-facing fireplace as the perfect warm-up stop.
Nestled against a backdrop of the Northfield mountains, the jeweled-glass-box building offers spectacular views of campus and the surrounding countryside.
