This room may be called a “combinable conference room” on architectural plans, but to the Lynn University community, it will be a place to learn, share ideas with student government, meet employers or host a celebration. Architecture firm Gensler designed the George Elmore and Marti LaTour Combinable Conference Room to be multifunctional, meeting a number of current needs and anticipating future uses.
“The key feature of the new space is its adaptability because it enables us to set the room up differently for different kinds of meetings.”

Thanks to a retractable wall, two rooms, each furnished with a 12-person conference table, can quickly become one larger room. Each section also features a large wall-mounted screen for sharing presentations or video.
The west-facing room’s windows offer dramatic sunset views, making it perfect for an early evening event. The eastern room has cozy seating integrated along its walls.
The conference room is also an ideal setup for meetings of organizations like Knights of the Roundtable (KOR), the student government.
“We’re really excited to use the new space,” said KOR Officer Evan Musgrave ’18, class of 2020. “It’s important to have a consistent meeting place with enough seating for everyone.”
External relations Knight Natalia Narvaez, class of 2019, said, “To me, the key feature of the new space is its adaptability because it enables us to set the room up differently for different kinds of meetings.”
George Elmore and Marti LaTour, whose gift made the conference room possible, have generously supported Lynn in the past; the previous dining commons in the Lynn Student Center, fondly remembered by alumni and current students, was one of their gifts.
