Welcome Center, Lafayette College
The Lafayette College Welcome Center will be a new gateway — a place where visitors make their first acquaintance with the campus, and where students begin their Lafayette journey. Located at the iconic entry to campus, the new building works together with its historical and contemporary neighbors to define an arrival experience and anchor the North Quad. Through its form, materials, and landscape design, the Welcome Center creates connections between the existing buildings and pathways linking important campus routes.
In addition to providing new office space for Admissions programs, the building accommodates important and significant new meeting spaces, including a 2-story, glazed Reception Hall with sweeping views of the newly redesigned Quad. The Reception Hall will be a new “living room” for the campus, inviting students, faculty, and administrators to interact with each other, and with prospective members of the College community.
