The new building will feature architectural elements from both Keith and Leonard halls as a way to preserve a flavor of the past, and its technology offerings will make it conducive to today’s learning needs.

In addition, the building will provide those who travel by wheelchair or motorized scooter a completely accessible path from the Eberly College of Business and Information Technology and Memorial Field House to the Oak Grove.
