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, and 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.
