Willcox Hearth Cafe

The Wilcox Hearth with vaulted ceiling, wood floor, and students studying at tables

Located on the second floor of Lawrence Hall, the cozy, light-filled Willcox Hearth was named for W.R.B. Willcox, the head of the architecture program from 1922 to 1947. Willcox had a tradition of opening his home to students once a week for informal discussions, and that tradition that lives on in the Hearth where you can grab a coffee and a pastry and catch up with friends and colleagues.
