The Straub Hall renovation project will provide much needed infrastructure replacement and a full interior renovation of a historic building, transforming the Straub Hall into an innovative 21st Century academic facility. Amidst the demands of a rapidly increasing student population, and the constraints of an outdated historical building, an opportunity to create a state-of-the-art, multi-level, 500-seat lecture hall in the heart of campus presented itself. Through collaborative, inclusive design strategies and thoughtful discourse between new architecture and historical context, Straub Hall was successfully woven into a broader campus fabric with pedestrian pathways, bike parking, discrete service routes and recycling stations.

The Classroom Expansion project includes approximately 1,000 total classroom seats in a two story building totaling over 58,000 sf. Classrooms include one of the nation’s finest technically daylit large lecture auditoriums, 150-seat lecture halls and smaller learning spaces of various sizes organized around central circulation and gathering spaces. Located between an academic building, Straub Hall, and a residential building, the new expansion space will also provide a new connection between campus open spaces. Opsis Architecture is working in association with Rowell Brokaw Architects on both projects.
