Building History

Back in 1945, the institution decided to have a new building hosting an auditorium, a library, a chapel and a broadcasting unit (Cedar Bough 1947). Irwin Hall included offices of administration, auditorium, broadcasting studio, euthenics department, science lab, PE room, student cooperative, an arts-music room and alumnae room (Catalogue – BCW – 1950-1951). Till 2005, it housed the Stoltzfus Library. Today, the building hosts Offices: President, main administration, legal, alumni, development, registrar, admission, budget, finance, business… Innovation Center; auditorium.

The Stoltzfus Library has been relocated from Irwin Hall L6 to Learning Resources Center in 1998-1999. The vacated space in Irwin Level 6 underwent renovation to house the central administration offices that had been accommodated in Irwin Hall level 1.
