From the 2023 Educational Interiors Showcase: Romney Hall

The Montana State University building was recognized for its outstanding design in the Historic Preservation category.

The renovation of Romney Hall on the Montana State University campus modernized the historic building, constructed in 1922, while preserving its character and meeting the needs of a growing student population. The project transformed the former physical education building into much-needed instructional space, adding 17 classrooms and centers for mathematics, writing, veterans and students with disabilities. The starting point for the project was a consensus that the character-defining features of this Italian Renaissance-style building should be retained. The goal of providing 1,000-plus classroom seats was accomplished through various classroom types ranging from 24-seat instructional rooms to a 300-person “classroom in the round,” which showcases the former gym floor.
