University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Student Union Phase I Dining Facility
The first phase of the Student Union at the University of Tennessee includes extensive dining and seating for students, faculty and staff.
With varied food vendor options and twice the capacity of the old University Center, the Student Union seats more than 1,100 diners and offers patrons the opportunity to meet, socialize, and catch up on studying.
The dining portions of Student Union Phase I are in the upper portion of the building and border the campus plaza that connects to the new Pedestrian Bridge. The dining facility features flat-screen displays and a variety of seating options. Accent colors of orange, white and gray are used in wall tiles, seating, and light fixtures.
Visible from the dining facility is a glass-and-terrazzo staircase that links four floors of the green building with features that include a lighting system that adjusts to make best use of daylight and save on energy costs.
