$60 million lecture hall planned for Binghamton University

March 19, 2024
The facility will add about 30 classrooms to the Binghamton, New York, campus

After receiving $123 million in new funding from the state of New York, Binghamton University is moving forward with plans to construct a new lecture hall on the Binghamton campus.

reports that construction of the lecture hall will cost about $60 million, and the school plans to break ground on the project this fall. It will be situated in an undeveloped area across from Academic Buildings A and B.

The building will add about 30 classroom spaces, relieving pressure from buildings such as the University Union, where rooms not meant for teaching are being used as classrooms.

Provost and Executive Vice President of Academic Affairs Donald Hall says the project will include 200-person classrooms, and a variety of smaller classrooms, ranging from 40 to 125 seats.

If everything goes according to plan, the lecture hall is expected to open in fall 2027. 

The state funding also will provide $30 million for the renovation of lab and teaching spaces in the Science 3 building, $22 million for renovations in the Fine Arts building, and $11 million for campus-wide maintenance.
