The Colorado School of Mines Cecil H. & Ida Green Graduate and Professional Center is representative of the blending of humanity and technology. The facility is designed as a place for meetings, the arts, and a variety of receptions and banquets as well as a place for the study of science and technology via exhibitions and conferencing.
The Green Center is a unique building on campus. It houses some 85,000 square feet of event areas comprised of a Grand Lobby which can act as an exhibit area, two lecture halls, (Metals and Petroleum), reception halls (Friedhoff 1, 2 & 3), and an 1,100 seat theater (Bunker Auditorium). Thus, the Green Center serves the Mines community as both a community events center and as a campus event facility.
