Our 72-acre campus rests atop a labyrinth of tunnels. The underground network runs from Dugan Hall to Old Main, from Iggy's in Palisano Pavilion to Bouwhuis Library. The tunnels serve a practical use—they keep us warm through Western New York winters. But there’s more to it than that. They’re vibrant. You can’t walk 10 feet without hearing a welcoming ‘hello.’ Bright posters adorn the walls—invitations for upcoming events. Friendships form on the pathways to class. Snacks are shared. Courses are taught. Clubs rally. Our tunnels keep us connected, in more ways than one.
