Hyde Hall

Hyde Hall Renovation

Hyde Hall is home to University of Evansville’s nationally-renowned theatre program, and houses Shanklin Theatre and other academic spaces. This campaign to renew Hyde Hall with state-of-the-art academic technology will enhance students’ classroom experience and open the door to collaborative, project-based work and group learning.

Hyde Hall

Visible from Sesquicentennial Oval, gateway to the University, Hyde Hall is located in the heart of campus. Hyde Hall houses the Shanklin Theatre, home of University of Evansville’s nationally renowned undergraduate theatre program led by 45 year Department Chair Mr. John David Lutz. Also located in Hyde Hall are many core learning spaces, classrooms, and faculty offices.

Renovations to Hyde Hall will enhance the functionality of an already bustling building while maintaining its character. Improvements to this existing building will provide academic space that allows quality faculty to interact with quality students. Modern learning spaces upgrade the student’s academic experience and open the door to innovated thinking. Flexible and active learning centers equipped with academic technology will lend the way for collaborative project-based work and group learning.

Along with upgraded learning spaces, Hyde Hall would receive an advanced energy efficient heating and cooling system which would deliver enormous savings. This is representative of the University of Evansville’s commitment to promote a healthy environment for the campus community as well as provide a long-term cost-saving benefit to the University.
