Locker Rentals

Bowling and billiard lockers may be rented for the semester in the Breakzone recreation area in Squires. Go to the Breakzone control desk to rent one.

All Gender Restrooms

We're excited to be the home of numerous all-gender restrooms. Student Engagement and Campus Life in Student Affairs strives to cultivate environments where all students can thrive. All-gender restrooms are another step to ensure a more inclusive campus environment and promote student well-being.

A multi-stall, all gender restroom is available on the 1st floor near the Breakzone entrances. A single stall all gender restroom is available on the second floor near the vending machines. A multi-stall, all gender restroom is located on the 3rd floor of Squires Student Center (near Brush Mountain B). For our two multi-stall locations, all gender identities are welcome in these restrooms, meaning that multiple people can be in the restroom, regardless of gender identity.

Meeting Spaces

Squires Student Center provides various reservable meeting rooms and major event venues for Student Organizations and University Departments. Contact the Event Services Office to learn more about the venues we manage and how to reserve a space.

There are also several open meeting rooms on the second floor that can be accessed and reserved by all VT students any time M-F from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. These rooms include: Room 232, Room 234, Room 236, and Room 238.


Squires Student Center has a food court where patrons may relax and have a bite to eat. Squires Food Court has seating for 300 people. Squires Student Center features Burger 37, Au Bon Pain cafè, and Au Bon Pain kiosk.

Meditation and Prayer Space

The Meditation Space is a quiet place to meditate, pray, or just enjoy a few peaceful moments to melt away stress. The room is located on the second floor of Squires behind the Recital Salon. The room is accessible to everyone and free to use. We encourage visitors to refrain from extended use, bringing in food and drinks, talking, sleeping, and using electronics. Should you need to wash before prayer; the basin is located in room 237.
