Corbett Family Hall
Offices and labs for the Departments of Anthropology and Psychology, which are housed in a variety of buildings on campus, will now be in one place in Corbett Family Hall. These departments have previously been scattered in multiple locations throughout campus. The consolidation will provide new opportunities for scholarly exchange and interaction, as well as the obvious logistical benefits.
In addition, the Rex and Alice A. Martin Media Center in this building will bring together all campus multimedia services, plus provide space for the new Catholic Media Project and teaching space for the Department of Film, Television and Theatre.
Level 1: The Martin Media Center with a 2,000-square-foot studio and production, teaching, learning, research, and scholarship facilities. A control room will support faith-based productions and live programming, such as Masses at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, as well as athletics events, performing arts presentations, and academic lectures and speeches.
Level 2: Anthropology offices, administrative space, conference and tutoring areas, and multi-function research and teaching labs.
Levels 3, 4 and 5: Psychology offices, classrooms, labs, computer rooms, and a student lounge.
Level 6: Mechanical support.
Level 7: Outdoor club seating for football, outdoor terraces, and a large space that will double as a club area and flexible classroom.
Level 8: Outdoor club seating for football.
Level 9: Working press box, radio booths, and a club area with indoor and outdoor premium seating for football.
The Martin Media Center opened in mid-July, anthropology faculty and staff will moved into their new quarters before the spring 2018 semester, and the psychology department will wait until after May’s commencement to make its move.
