Alumni may remember Reno Hall with its 70s-style dorm rooms and bright orange and brown decor. The building had been closed to students for the past three years because it needed costly renovation. It reopened this fall and now serves as home to the Education, Psychology and Counseling & Addiction Studies departments and the Psychology and Counseling clinics. The building’s interior has been remodeled in neutral, inviting tones. The three-story building now includes a large reception/conference area, an I-smart internet-wired classroom, counseling rooms and lounges. The dorm rooms have been converted to faculty and staff offices.

The programs and offices moved from the Outer Drive Campus as part of the University’s strategic plan to move all academic and administrative undergraduate and graduate programs to the McNichols Campus. The Language and Cultural Training and Theatre programs are the last Liberal Arts & Education program to move to McNichols, and are scheduled to move to Reno Hall next year.
