Student Lounge


Gibson Hall also has one of the classiest student lounge on campus! Often referred to as the Gibson Salon, the space features eighteenth-century carved oak paneling that once lined the walls of the Hôtel de Sens in Paris’s music salon. There is also a marble fireplace mantel and a display of Renaissance instruments adorning the Gibson Salon. Students use the salon as a favorite place to study, relax, or catch up with friends.
