History

Function
Lanigan Hall is a Communications Lecture Hall located between Penfield Library and Mahar Hall on the north end of the Academic Quad. The two-story building is approximately 88,200 feet square, with interior spaces divided into two interrelated, but separate functions. The first floor is primarily devoted to the production, storage and assembly of visual and audio teaching material, while the second floor is devoted to the actual presentation of material to students. Major student lecture halls are located on the upper level and are wedge shaped, to provide optimum viewing conditions for lectures and visual demonstrations. The studios for the art department’s graphic design program, offices and classes for the School of Communications, the audio department, maintenance, storage areas, and Campus Technology Services are located on the ground level.

Namesake
Lanigan Hall was named after James Lanigan, Chairman of the College Council. For his career, he was an executive at the Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation. He was also the President of the New York State Board Association.
