Brown-Kopel Engineering Student Achievement Center

Construction of the $44 million Brown-Kopel Engineering Student Achievement Center was made possible thanks to a $30 million gift from John and Rosemary Brown, which was announced as part of an overall $57 million gift, the largest in university history, in April 2015 at the "Because This is Auburn" campaign for Auburn University kickoff event. Located in the heart of campus, the center specifically addresses students' professional and academic needs, providing one of the most comprehensive, active-learning environments in the country. 

To ensure the safety of all students, faculty, staff and visitors, and to ensure our return to campus is not interrupted, we are making a few changes to operations in the Brown-Kopel Center. The following safety measures for Brown-Kopel have been put into place:

  • Eating and drinking in the facility will be limited to the designated area outside Café 25 on the main floor. Please only use this area when actively eating or drinking, and be mindful of time spent in the area to allow others to enjoy lunch or a snack while in the facility.
  • There are occupancy limits on study rooms. Please see the signage on each room for the appropriate number of people allowed in each study room. No food is allowed in the study rooms.
  • Safety officers will be present in the building to ensure all safety measures are being followed.

Consistent with university guidelines, masks are required at all times on Auburn University’s campus, both indoors and outdoors, except for when actively eating or drinking in the designated areas or when in a personal office or study room by yourself with the door closed. Social distancing guidelines should be followed at all times. It is vitally important that we all adhere to these safety measures for the health and wellbeing of all, to ensure that we maintain in-person classes and to continue to have an open campus. Thank you all for being responsible during this time and working to keep Auburn open and safe!
