University Hall University of Massachusetts Boston

University Hall, originally known as The General Academic Building No. 1, is a four-story building containing general purpose classrooms and three significant academic departments – Art, Performing Arts, and Chemistry – an intentional blending of Arts and Sciences creating a unique, collaborative learning experience.

The classrooms and the departments are supplemented with a range of community spaces such as a 500-seat auditorium, theater, recital hall, exhibition gallery, lounge, and a café that foster user interaction and provide an academic and cultural destination on campus.

At the heart of University Hall is an atrium that provides spectacular views of Boston Harbor. It forms a circulation hub improving connections and accessibility for pedestrians in the building and across the campus. The facility incorporates state-of-the-art sustainable design strategies and will qualify for LEED Silver certification. It is a lively interdisciplinary teaching facility serving all UMass Boston students and the community.
