Palm Court, also known as The Center of the Universe, is a central square full of royal palm trees in the middle of the three Pei Residence Halls. It is used for large social gatherings, including but not limited to Towne Meetings, Walls, and PCPs.
There used to be outdoor tile that would burn your feet if you walked barefoot in Palm Court, which has since been replaced with paver-like tiles. Some of these pavers bear inscriptions from alums and doners of funds for the renovation of Palm Court, which took place over the summer of 2009. Now the main threat to those barefoot in Palm Court is glass, which is prohibited in the area.
