The Living Center
In the early 1900s, Springfield, Mass. was like any other major city in America at the time, booming with industries and factories. The Living Center, known to students as the “LC,” was once one of those buildings. After Springfield College purchased the building in the early 1990s, it was used as a classroom building as well as a residence hall. When the building opened in 1991, it served as the second building on campus to house apartments. The Living Center houses 200 residents with 43 apartments consisting of three, five, and six people each. The LC is conveniently located next to two main academic halls—Blake and Locklin.
The Living Center mainly houses juniors and seniors. Each apartment has a kitchenette and common room with private bathrooms. Students can choose to live in single or double rooms within the apartments. Each apartment is air-conditioned. These apartments allow students to have a bit of independence and responsibility, while also enjoying all that campus life has to offer. In addition, the Living Center has a multipurpose room with a large-screen TV, a pool table, and a full kitchen. There is also a lounge on the first floor with a sitting area, a TV, and a foosball table. A courtyard surrounds the building; the courtyard serves as a spot where many students hold special events.
