Celebrate New Spaces

News Story

If you build it, they will come and celebrate at the ribbon cutting ceremonies for new buildings on both the New York City and Westchester campuses on October 15 and 20.

You’ve patiently waited and watched as our campuses take new shapes and grow to new heights with the addition of 33 Beekman residence hall in New York City, and the Environmental Center complex and Alumni Hall in Westchester. With the scaffolding removed and the doors wide open, it’s time to celebrate our beautiful new spaces on campus with a few familiar faces. Join Pace President Stephen J. Friedman, Chairman Mark M. Besca ’81, and members of the Pace Community for the official opening celebrations and ribbon cutting ceremonies on both campuses.

33 Beekman Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Tuesday, October 20 │ 11:00 a.m. │ 33 Beekman Courtyard
33 Beekman is Pace University’s latest residential offering in New York City, located just one block south of One Pace Plaza in the heart of lower Manhattan. The 34-story upperclassman residence hall is one of the tallest residence halls in the world and houses 761 students. Amenities on the second floor include shared student spaces and a 24-hour gym. Tours of the new building will take place after the ceremony.

Alumni Hall and Environmental Center Complex Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

>> Alumni Hall is the first new residence hall of the Pleasantville Master Site Plan, and is a four-story, 477-bed residence hall at the center of campus, with a newly landscaped quad to include green space and walking paths. It houses First Year Interest Group (FIG) themed lounges, faculty in residence apartment, dining, and classrooms, and will transform the living-learning experience at Pace.

>> The Environmental Center Complex is home to the newly established Dyson College Institute for Sustainability and the Environment (DCISE), which comprises the Environmental Studies and Science Department, the Dyson College Nature Center, the Pace Academy for Applied Environmental Studies, and the Environmental Consortium of Colleges and Universities. Among the Environmental Center complex’s many features include a classroom building, rebuilt farmhouse, hawk cages, barns, and open outdoor classroom and event space.

Tours of the new facilities will take place after the ceremony.
