Lee Hall 

Since 1958, Lee Hall, named for program founder Rudolph E. Lee, has been home to the School of Architecture. Lee Hall is a complex of buildings and additions. Lee I is the 1958 building, designed by Harlan McClure. Lee II was added in the 1970s and 90s. Lee III, designed by Tom Phifer, opened in 2012. Room numbers in Lee Hall indicate which part of the building the room is located. For example, Lee 1-111 is the large auditorium, Room 111, in Lee I. Click here to download a map of Lee Hall
