Building Expansion and Renovation Project: South Hall to be Dedicated on September 7, 2012 

The building expansion and renovation project has added the greatest amount of new academic and community space since the Law Quadrangle was completed more than 75 years ago.

South Hall, our new four-story, 100,000-square-foot building (about the size of Hutchins Hall), stands across Monroe Street south of the Quad. South Hall opened on January 11, 2012, and houses classrooms of various sizes, seminar rooms, the legal clinics, student services, multipurpose spaces, and faculty and staff offices. The building is clad with stone from the quarry that furnished the stone for the other Quad buildings and roofed in slate.

Additionally, the metal siding on Legal Reseach has been reclad with a stone facing.

The spaces were designed by Hartman-Cox Architects of Washington, D.C., in collaboration with Integrated Design Solutions of Troy, Michigan.


Before South Hall is dedicated on September 7, 2012, we must complete our goal of raising $70 million in private support (total project cost is $102 million). We have less than $1.5 million to go! A gift of $50,000 or more will entitle the donor to permanent recognition on our donor wall. For information, please call 734.615.4505.
