A jewel at the heart of the historic West Campus, this open, glass-walled space has been designed for gathering and studying, reading and writing, conversation and collaboration. The Pavilion is an elegant yet inviting building that is a daily destination for students, faculty and staff as well as a venue for special events. The Pavilion café, the Perk, serves beverages and salads, sandwiches and desserts Monday-Friday and Sunday evening.
The von der Heyden Pavilion is named for Karl and Mary Ellen von der Heyden in recognition of their generous financial support and leadership at the university. Karl von der Heyden ’62, currently a member of the university's board of trustees, chaired the library’s Campaign for Duke committee.
