Eddie Layton Student Union
The Eddie Layton Student Union at the New York city campus in lower Manhattan is a state-of-the-art facility. Located on B-level in One Pace Plaza, the student union contains a study room with wireless access; a game area with a pool table; lounge areas; an art gallery; a meditation room; and an 1,800-square-foot space for movies and dancing.
This facility enhances students' experiences at Pace. The man for whom the student union is named—Eddie Layton passed away in December 2004. Layton was organist for the New York Yankees and was the first person to play the famous charge—dun-dun-dun-dun-da-dum!—at ball games. Layton also played the organ at Pace commencement ceremonies at Radio City Music Hall for 30 years. The recordings of Layton’s music are available for listening to at the student union as well as displays of some of the Yankee organist’s sports memorabilia.
This Eddie Layton Student Union serves as a place for students to study, meditate, enjoy campus events, and even enjoy the occasional game of pool. Floor Plan View a virtual preview of the main lounge by clicking the virtual preview button below.
