Ward Hall contains shops, laboratories, offices and classrooms for nuclear engineering education and research. The building features well-equipped laboratories for neutron activation analysis, nuclear fuel processing, gamma ray spectroscopy, environmental radiation and heat transfer. Ward Hall is adjacent to the TRIGA Mark II, a nuclear reactor built in 1961.

The building's name honors Dr. T. Ward, who established the nuclear engineering curriculum while serving as head of the Department of Chemical Engineering. Ward Hall was built in 1962, and construction of an additional wing followed a decade later.
