Suffolk’s new academic building at 20 Somerset Street is “an airy beautiful space” and “a place of learning and excitement” for students. Here, in their own words, faculty members, students and architects tell the story of a vibrant building designed for innovation and collaboration. The building’s classrooms encourage interaction and knowledge-building through teamwork. And its science labs will prepare students for the jobs of today and tomorrow.

20 Somerset and the adjacent Roemer Plaza tie the new Suffolk campus together and put the University on the map in the downtown area in a whole new way.
