Your college, your resources, your success as a student

Austin Hall — it’s an impressive space: 100,000 square feet of classrooms, offices, research labs, conference rooms, study areas and project rooms. But its usage — designed to be filled with students interacting with professors and peers — is even more impactful. The building promotes innovation, creative thinking and collaboration with workspaces geared toward different learning styles. Austin Hall offers so many more opportunities for communication, including, most significantly, between professor and student.
