The Brickyard, officially named "University Plaza", is one of North Carolina State University's nine Hallowed Spaces. The plaza was designed by NCSU's alumn, Richard C. Bell, and construction began in 1966. On March 7, 1968, on the 81st Founder's Day of the school, the space was formally dedicated. The Brickyard is a space for students and staff to congregate for a variety of purposes.
