Seton Hall University
South Orange, NJ
Seton Hall University strives to be a home for the mind, the heart, and the spirit. In alignment with its Strategic Plan and focus on distinction in academics and scholarship, Stafford Hall improves the quantity and quality of academic space on campus. Replacing an old structure, Stafford Hall provides 12 state-of-the-art classrooms and expands the building though a connection to President’s Hall. By balancing formal learning spaces with informal gathering spaces, Stafford Hall offers a rich, collaborative, and welcoming learning environment filled with natural light.
The three-story structure is designed in keeping with the surrounding campus context and to reflect the architectural style of nearby Presidents Hall. Internal connections to Marshall Hall provide greater accessibility. Stafford Hall upholds the serenity of the priests’ garden adjacent to Presidents Hall, while creating new academic opportunity and greater connection for the entire university community.
