The Innovation and Creativity Suite, LL49 in the Ruane Center is intended as a getaway or retreat space where groups of faculty, students, and staff can come together to think about, discuss, plan, and innovate in a collaborative environment.
The Suite is divided into two areas. The lounge area includes soft seating, two computer stations, a printer, and a white board. The meeting area serves as a functional meeting space with six-person tables that may be brought together to create a group workspace.
