Frederick Douglass Commons
The Frederick Douglass Commons was originally built in the 1950s and named for Rochester's national leader of the abolitionist movement. In 2016, we completed a major renovation of the building to reinvent the space into a major hub of student life. Connected to Wilson Commons with a bridge, together they form our Campus Center. The Frederick Douglass Commons also connects to the Lam Square lounge in Rush Rhees library by way of a bridge from the third-floor public lounge.
