Mudd Hall

Building Description:

The Mudd Hall Biology Complex includes three connected buildings, with Mudd Hall as the apex of the triangle. Mudd Hall was completed in 1979 and is named for Seeley G. Mudd, a former dean of the School of Medicine at the University of Southern California and founder of a trust that provided for the construction of buildings by private universities. Over his lifetime, Mudd contributed over $10 million to continue the work of educational excellence, and has buildings named after him at many prestigious colleges and universities nationwide. To the rear of Mudd Hall, there is a small outdoor terrace where students can enjoy pleasant weather while finishing homework or studying for a test. Mudd Hall contains the offices of the Biology Department, seminar rooms, laboratories, and a 350-seat lecture hall.
