The Gutin living room

University Center Gutin Living Room rendering

If the Lynn University Center is the heart of the campus, then the Gutin living room is the heartbeat.

Like your living room at home, the Gutin living room is designed to be welcoming and warm, where visitors are encouraged to relax and catch up with each other on their way to eat, meet or study. Its flexible seating accommodates both organized activities and impromptu gatherings, with bright glass walls as a backdrop.

Made possible by a $2 million gift from Barbara and the late Irving Gutin, the space is not only interesting at eye level, it also will be a visual experience from above, where the second story balcony and the new pub, Christine’s, offer an elevated perspective on the activity below.

“It’s a warm and friendly space,” Mrs. Gutin said. “I like that it’s on the way to where students eat. They can sit and talk, or just say, ‘meet me at the living room.’”

Mrs. Gutin, who serves as president of the Friends of the Conservatory, said living rooms appeal to her because they’re relaxed and homey.

The Gutins have named living rooms at three other universities.

“I find the Lynn University campus very peaceful,” she said. “I’m happy to be part of it.”

The living room will be nestled in a lively corner by Elaine’s eatery and the Dining Commons.
