Faraday Hall

Faraday is an 89,000-square-foot building that is located a short walk from academic buildings, and is at the intersection of Faraday, Grove, and Lancaster streets and is home to about 260 upper-class students. Its unique design elements were inspired by Michael Faraday, an English scientist whose work in electromagnetism and electrochemistry paved the way for modern technology.
