John X. Jamrich Hall

Planning for Jamrich Hall started in 2009 with the goal of "providing an efficient, state-of-the-art facility that improves academic delivery, maximizes building use and reduces overall operational and maintenance costs."

Jamrich Hall officially opened on Aug. 18, 2014 as a replacement to the old Jamrich Hall. This 133,000 square foot state-of-the-art building features a new, 3-story classroom facility with a connector walkway to the NMU Learning Resources Center. Some of the features include:  

  • A 500-seat lecture hall with a prominent stage
  • Three 80-seat lecture rooms with tiered seating
  • 24 active learning classrooms designed to encourage collaborative learning 
  • 106 administrative offices and support areas
  • Three meeting rooms
  • Nine teaching assistant suites
  • Six informal learning areas in the large corridor areas
  • Starbucks

Jamrich houses five academic department offices (English, Criminal Justice, Sociology and Anthropology, Social Work, and the Math and Computer Science) and is LEED-certified, meaning that its construction meets the standards of sustainability and energy efficiency set forth by the U.S. Green Building Council.
