About Strong Hall
Strong Hall is the main administration building for the Lawrence campus. Construction on the the 130-room building, faced in buff terra cotta, began on the east wing of the Administration Building in 1909; it was occupied by seven departments in 1911. Because of budget constraints and the demands of the university's response to World War I, “West Ad” and “Center Ad” were completed in stages, ending in January 1924.
The building was renamed for sixth chancellor Strong in 1934, after his death. In 1998, about the time of major renovations and upgrading, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and it is part of the campus historic district as well.
