"Order! We shall have order!"
―Vice Chair Mas Ameda during a meeting of the Senate[src]

The Senate Building,[4] also called the Senate Rotunda[5] or the Galactic Senate Building[6] was an immense building located on the planet Coruscant that served as the seat of the Galactic Republic Senate[2] and later the Imperial Senate of the Galactic Empire.[3]

Located in the heart of Coruscant, the Senate Building was surrounded by the Senate District,[5] including the Senate Office Building where the Supreme Chancellor had his offices.[2] The building and the Senate district were protected by the blue robed Senate Guards who stood watch and blended in with the formal surroundings of the Senate Building. They could also be found at the entrances to many of the delegate platforms and at the entrances to the building itself. Clossal statues outside the building commemorated the Republic's ancient founders.[5][6]

At the center of the building was the large, rotund Galactic Senate Chamber. It held seats on circular platforms for the hundreds of senators and delegates who would meet to pass laws and discuss legislation. When a member wished to speak, the platform could disconnect from the wall, allowing the member to be seen and heard by all others. In the center was a podium from which the Supreme Chancellor would direct the business of the Senate.[7]
