    As a student, I lived in this building for one semester; sadly, before the lounge was refurbished. I understand it’s now a vibrant space with lots of activity, but in my day, it felt like a wet winter’s day in there and was hardly ever in use. Just goes to show how good architecture can be affected by the quality of its interiors! And yes, it was referred to as the Jetson Lounge.
