I am not clear from your explanation whether there are connections in the patch panel for things other than the servers that will move. But assuming that the connections in the patch panel are for the servers that will move then I would move the patch panel. It seems to me that the effort to "bridge" 50 connections is more effort than it is worth. And leaving the patch panel where it is brings up a question of how you will establish connectivity in the data center. Assuming that you want a patch panel in the data center I think the easy solution is to move the panel from the break room.
As to the connections in the patch panel for things other than servers, our T1 connections are plugged in to the networking hardware on the rack - not the panel itself. Everything else appears mobile.
There is some slight concern that the company that wired the building did not incorporate enough slack in the existing ethernet cables to fully extend the existing wiring to reach as deep into the data center as we want. In that case, our decision will create a new discussion.
