Directly adjacent to the kitchen, the Goodale Lounge contains the dining area and the primary movie and television watching area on the hall. In addition to such amenities as the Barco projector and two Athena workstations, the Goodale Lounge is also home to the Rack. Hall Feeds are held in the dining area of the lounge, with additional seating and possibly a movie playing in the sitting area.
The Goodale Lounge was renovated in Spring 2005. A new stand for the Barco projector was constructed and furniture was rearranged, resulting in a far more open and esthetically pleasing feel in the lounge.
Located in a corner of the dining area, the Rack is home to Slugwiki and the Bemix server.
There are two Athena workstations located in the Goodale Lounge, blueshift.mit.edu and shadowrunner.mit.edu.
