Hannah Hall of Science

Hannah Hall of Science, 1969

Quick Facts


The science building was the first structure built with state appropriated funds on the OU campus. fThe building was used for temporary student housing during its 1961 construction, before the first dormitories (Anibal and Fitzgerald House) were completed in late Fall 1961. Hannah Hall was designed for instruction in engineering, physics, chemistry and maths. It has since been designated for instruction related to the physical and medical sciences. Due to the ever-changing advancements made in the scientific fields, Hannah Hall has been regularly upgraded in 1982, 1998, and again in 2013.  This most recent addition included interior renovations to Hannah Hall's biology, chemistry, and physics labs, as well as the creation of an additional pre-medical center.
