Calvin Hall is home to the College of Arts and Sciences. In the past, it has also housed the College of Business Administration and the College of Home Economics.

Building offices


Calvin Hall is named in honor of Henrietta Willard Calvin, one of the nation's leading home economists of her time. Calvin was an early graduate of Kansas State Agricultural College in domestic science in 1886, and was a professor of domestic science, now human ecology. Building construction ended in 1908 at a total cost of $70,000. Then known as the Domestic Science and Art Hall, the building contained the College of Home Economics until 1960, when it underwent remodeling to serve the College of Business Administration.

In 2016, the College of Business Administration moved into its new building on the east side of campus. The College of Arts and Sciences made Calvin Hall its new home in 2017.
