IUPUI will be celebrating the dedication of its newest building University Hall. The $22.9 million five-story building, at the corner of University Boulevard and New York Street, will be the new home of the IUPUI administration, replacing the Administration Building
University Hall will also be home for schools new and historic. It will house the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, the first school of its kind in the world, and a significant portion of the School of Social Work, the oldest program of its kind in the United States.
Construction of University Hall, which covers approximately 100,000 square feet, took 14 months to complete, according to John Lewis, associate vice president of capital planning and facilities in the University Architect’s office. That space includes IUPUI’s administrative offices but also incorporates room for academic purposes, including two general inventory classrooms in addition to the administrative offices of philanthropy and social work.
University Hall was built to meet Silver LEED standards and is awaiting verification of that process.
