Rafik B. Hariri Building

The Rafik B. Hariri Building (or SMG) is located at 595 Commonwealth Avenue. The edifice opened in October 1996 and contains 25 classrooms, a 375-seat lecture hall, five computer labs, and The Frederick S. Pardee Management Library. The building offers wireless Internet throughout in addition to 4,000 wired dataports. Also in the building is a Breadwinners Deli and a fully wired Starbucks Café, with data ports at many tables.

Room reservations are available online. [2]
