In Fall 2023, Pace will open its newest building, 15 Beekman, a 26-story mixed use vertical learning hub on the corner of Beekman and Nassau streets. This state-of-the-art addition to Pace’s NYC Campus will be home to classrooms, student life spaces, the main dining hall, first-year student housing, administrative and faculty offices, the Beekman Library, and the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems.

Major Upgrades for the Campus Community

Plus, we’re creating some really amazing student spaces, a brand-new Bianco Room (more space for events!), brand new space for the Seidenberg School, new classrooms with cutting-edge tech, a new home for the Learning Commons, and a coffee bar and lounge in the new lobby.

Our favorite feature? An outdoor terrace space on the 6th floor. Dining al fresco? Yes, please.

Faculty and Staff

Pace’s best kept secret is also New York’s smallest library. Pace’s Zine Library is under 100 square feet but what it lacks in size it makes up for in unique literary sources, student-created research, and pedagogical resources for faculty looking to change things up in the classroom.
