Building: D. H. Hill Jr. Library

University Plaza, or more commonly The Brickyard, is a public plaza at the heart of North Carolina State University's North Campus in Raleigh, North Carolina. It is the university's most active court and has been the site of numerous special events.

The plaza, conceived of and designed by landscape architect Richard C. Bell, FASLA, is mostly covered with red and white bricks which have been organized into various decorative mosaics. There are two main green areas on the plaza, one on the east side and one on the west. The east green area features two concrete chairs which serve as parabolic reflectors, amplifying and focusing sound waves so that someone sitting in one chair can easily hear the person in the other chair from a far distance.

You can check availability and make a reservation request for the brickyard through the campus Event Management System (EMS) at
