The multistory main entrance leads to an atrium that showcases the energy of the center with views to student lounges, dining, bookstore, café, and student clubs. During the day, it invites all to enter to escape the hot Texas sun. In the evening, this becomes a translucent lantern displaying the interior activities.

Students and the Commerce community alike enjoy the 420-seat Ballroom, meeting rooms, and dining areas for special events. Student program spaces, student club offices, and market place dining support student life.
