William F. Harrah College of Hospitality

The new William F. Harrah College of Hospitality building at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, includes about 95,000 square feet of classroom, laboratory, and meeting room space. The design of the new building encourages interaction between all students, faculty, and industry professionals. This new building will give opportunities to use cutting-edge approaches in the classroom. It will also allow the inverted classroom approach, which means less faculty lecture(s) and more ability to facilitate projects and conversations.

The building includes convertible interactive classrooms, a student-run cafe, function space overlooking the Las Vegas Strip, a PGA golf management learning center, and common spaces for students and educators to mingle and collaborate.
