The Wilf Family Global Commons will be built between the School’s iconic Mall and Russell Road. Designed by the architecture firm H2L2, the 30,000 square foot building’s location and amenities will make it a central hub for student and faculty interaction. In support of global education and experiential learning, high-tech classrooms with teleconferencing and presentation equipment will create exciting new learning opportunities and connections with people and places across the globe. These classrooms, as well as the five common rooms, technology kiosks, social areas, and multi-purpose activities space will draw students to the building and will provide even greater opportunity for interactions between students of diverse backgrounds.
The $9.1 million project is the first in a series of planned campus additions and renovations. The additional dormitory rooms, common spaces, offices, and classrooms will allow for renovations to existing dormitory spaces, classrooms, and offices throughout The Hun School’s campus, as well as the creation of an expanded infirmary and dance-movement space. Its addition to the campus will enrich global education offerings, residential living, and student and faculty relationships.
In April of 2013, The Hun School's Board of Trustees formally approved construction of The Global Commons. A Groundbreaking Ceremony took place on September 9, 2013 in association with the School's Centennial Convocation.
