The Fainman Lounge at Roosevelt University is located on the 2nd floor overlooking Michigan Avenue. The lounge was named after the Fainman family, who were dynamic members of the Chicago business community or many years, and early supporters of Roosevelt.
The Auditorium building, in which Fainman Lounge is located, is a National Historic Landmark. It is the achievement of famed architects Dankmar Adler, Louis Sullivan and young Frank Lloyd Wright as a draftsman. On October 5, 1887, President Grover Cleveland laid the cornerstone for the Auditorium Building. The 1888 Republican National Convention was held at the partially finished building, where Benjamin Harrison was nominated as a presidential candidate. It officially opened in 1889 and was immediately acclaimed as one of the most beautiful buildings in the world.
