Home to student services and various business functions, the new Calvin & Tina Tyler Hall will serve as the new ‘front door’ to Morgan State University graciously welcoming students, visitors, prospective students, and their families. The dynamic facility will create a transition between the original campus with its beautiful academic quad and the more contemporary buildings by incorporating architectural elements from both—stone, metal panel, and glazing designed to maximize natural light and visual transparency.

Natural and intuitive circulation will allow all users, even first-time visitors, to easily navigate the building. A large, interconnected, three-story lobby atrium located off the main entry visually connects all levels. From here, all services are either directly visible or flow directly from it. Visual connections between the building’s public spaces and the outdoors enhance the connections between students and the community.
