Navigating Reese Phifer: Six Hotspots Explained

If you’ve ever set foot in Reese Phifer, you know how confusing it can be. Parts of the building don’t connect to each other where you think they might. The main entrance isn’t on the first floor. Overall, Reese Phifer is a building that is difficult to understand and near impossible to master.

Here are a few of the most common places you might want to visit in the building C&IS calls home.

The Rotunda

The rotunda is the hub of Reese Phifer. When you enter the front door, you are in the Rotunda. This is a great place to start no matter where you want to go, because it has so many hallways branching off to many other locations.


PH 216

If you’re a C&IS major, odds are you’ve had or will have a class in PH 216. It is also the site of many meetings for C&IS clubs and organizations, like PRSSA.


The Commons

The Commons is a great place to go if you need to use a computer, print something or check out a book on communications. You can also rent out study rooms for meetings or group projects.


Tisch Student Services

Tisch Student Services is the go-to for all things C&IS advising. Changing your major, adding a minor, exploring internships and more are all topics you can learn more about by making an appointment at Tisch Student Services.


Student Lounge

The Student Lounge was recently renovated and is now back and better than ever! Similar to The Commons, the Student Lounge has conference rooms available to rent out as well as vending machines if you need a snack or a drink.


Capstone Agency Office

One of my personal favorite spots in Reese Phifer: the Capstone Agency offices. They are always filled with agency members working for their clients, socializing with other members and just enjoying the space on the first floor of Reese Phifer.


So, if you’re looking to explore some more of Reese Phifer, try one of the options on this list and get to know C&IS a little bit better!
