Harold Clark Simmons Hall

Through the generous donation of Harold and Annette Simmons, SMU is designing and building the new Harold Clark Simmons Hall. As part of the Annette Caldwell Simmons School, this 40,000 square foot facility will house several academic and community-support spaces, including a teaching design lab, student assessment lab, classrooms, the Department of Teaching and Learning, and the Budd Center for the Involvement of Communities in Education. The building’s groundbreaking occurred on September 12, 2014 with construction beginning soon thereafter. To learn more about the groundbreaking please click here.
