Robertson Cafe Renovation

The University of Akron

Hasenstab Architects provided architectural services for a $4.6 million renovation of Robertson Cafe at The University of Akron.

The project scope included infrastructure and serving area improvements to an outdated 500-seat dining facility.  The University’s goal was to provide a more attractive food service option for campus residents and visitors. The former, spacious one-room open cafeteria design now has several dining spaces, including a new 24-hour dining area which seats 40. Food stations are arranged in a marketplace setup, with an emphasis on display cooking. The dining area features comfortable seating for students to eat and relax between classes.

The University’s vision was to make Robertson Cafe a destination place for students to enjoy a variety of foods, communications media and the incorporation of live entertainment. Snacks and beverages are available 24 hours a day at an attached convenience store.
