Blair Knapp Hall

Blair Knapp Hall

Built in 1968, Knapp Hall is home to eight academic departments and a performance space.

History & Architecture

Knapp Hall was the last of 15 major buildings constructed on campus during the presidency of A. Blair Knapp (1951-1968) and was named in his honor when he died unexpectedly of a heart attack before construction was completed.

Deep inside the building, below many bustling academic departments, you’ll find the Knapp Hall Performance Lab, a former lecture hall renovated into a state-of-the-art facility where students, faculty, and renowned guests explore the performing arts.
