Stoeckel Hall — 1897
Stoeckel Hall, currently home to the Music Department, is located on the corner of College and Wall Streets. It was designed by Grosvenor Atterbury and completed in 1897 as a residence for Chi Phi Fraternity. This Venetian Gothic building, originally called York Hall, was renamed for music professor Gustave Stoeckel in 1954, when it was converted for use by the School of Music.
In 2008, Stoeckel Hall underwent extensive renovations to repair structural damage and update aging facilities. The renovation project added soundproof walls, doors and hallways and included the construction of an addition, which contains lecture and seminar rooms. Reopened in January 2009, the building houses administrative and faculty offices on the first, second and third floors; and graduate student study areas and a rehearsal room on the lower level. On the fourth floor, there is a state-of-the-art, 24-hour computer/technology suite.
