Class & Instruction buildings of Central University of New Town
This section is designed to help you locate the general areas you are likely to need to go for any of our courses. There are exception, so double check any schedules, but most of the time these will be helpful and accurate for the major departments.
Charles Wilson Memorial Library (14)
The library is three stories tall and houses millions of books, records, papers, and other documents made available for students and staff alike. There is also an extensive online and electronic collection of images and data. The library is nearly exclusively used for study and research, which requires quiet and calm. To achieve this the library does not allow normal code inspections within its walls. Instead, they grant the librarians extra power to see that everyone is following the rules and keeping this calm and quiet. Those failing to comply with the librarian's rules will simply be made to leave until such time as they are willing to comply.
Law & Ethics (05, 06, & 13)
Legal and Ethics are popular courses at the school, as they have one of the better programs in the state. The classes for these are mostly held at the CU Legal Center and Freeman Hall, but some classes and special events are held at the Old Courthouse.
The Alameda Institute (21, 22, 23, 24, 25, & 26)
This six building complex, made of one very large and five small buildings, acts like a small college inside the large university. Most of their programs deal with media, visual arts, and art history, but they do have some other semi-related classes as well. The main building, Alameda Hall, houses the archives, studios, and labs. Orson Hall houses a small theater, used mainly for films and some lectures, while the rest of the small buildings (the Chernal, Frenal, Kaleb, and Orion buildings) are the main classrooms.
History, Archeology, & Anthropology (10, 15, 22, 54, & 55)
These classes are taught mainly in two buildings, Henry Jones Hall and Bill Morris Hall, but much of the research and study is handled inside the two historical centers. Although the Armon Kitterman Museum is occasionally used for some study, the items in there are usually moved to the General Walcutt Historical Center or Alameda Hall for any real work.
Sociology & Psychology (55 & 56)
Sociology and Psychology courses are mainly found in Perron Hall, but due to overflow several classes from the sociology department have been moved to the larger Bill Morris Hall across the street.
English & Literature (27, 28, 29, 30, & 31)
The area known as The Quad houses all five of the small buildings that the Literature and English departments calls home. James Hall and Antholny Hall belong to the Literature department. Thrace Hall, Herbert Hall, and Wadsworth Hall make up the English department. The library is also a regular resource, but not part of the department.
Linguistics, Languages, International Studies (32, 33, 34, & 58)
Hernandez Hall and Yamamoto Hall house the common foreign language and international studies classes, while the rest of them are all housed in The Valenzetti Center. Linguistics are found in Ozwall Hall. The three smaller buildings are all part of what they call the Quad, while The Valenzetti Center is found in the main strip.
Business & Economics Building (35)
Almost all the Business & Economics classes are found in Jasper Thorn Hall, the largest building of what they call The Quad (although James Hall of the Literature department is a close second).
Engineering & Mathematics (45, 46, 47, & 74)
The main Engineering Center is housed in two large towers, simply called Tower A and Tower B (they were named by engineers), although aquatic engineering is done over in Phelps Hall. Mathematics, Statistics, and many related classes are all done in Joseph Neuberg Hall.
Communications classes are housed on the third floor of Jane Turner Hall, in addition to parts of the second and fourth floors for certain classes. The main floor houses all the labs and studios used for training.
Education Department (48)
Education training and classes are housed on the fourth floor of Jane Turner Hall, although only taking up about two-thirds of the space.
Women's Studies (48)
Women's Studies classes are housed on parts of the first and second floors of Jane Turner Hall.
Physical Sciences (49, 50, 51, 52, 72 & 73)
Geography, Geology, Life Sciences, Earth Sciences, and more of the minor sciences are all housed in Carbine Hall. Biology and all related classes are housed in Michigan Hall. All forms of Chemistry are taught in Hawthorn Hall. Physics, Astrophysics, Quantum Mechanics, and other related classes are all housed in Hawkings Hall. Marine Biology and Water related sciences are all housed in Jakob Johan Hall, while other Aquatic Studies and live marine animal subjects are housed in Thompson Hall.
Medical Studies (53, 39, & 12)
Medicine is one of the more popular and highly respected departments found in the university. More nurses are turned out from here than any other single institution in the state, and that's not counting the EMTs, Doctors, and other medical professionals. The majority of the classes are found in Robinstein Hall, while the Shaundra Sports Medicine Center is home to the sports related medicine and rehabilitation courses, including the massage school. For further practice, the graduate students work in the Elizabeth Grace Neill Medical Center before being sent off to do their residency at a full hospital.
Culinary School (59)
The main floor of Randall Scott Hall houses the Culinary school and other food handling related classes.
Architecture and Urban Planning (59)
The top floors of Randall Scott Hall houses the Architecture and Urban Planning departments.
Computers and Graphic Design (61)
All Computer Programming, Hardware, Design, and Graphic Design classes are located in the extensive labs of the Andrew Thompson Computer Center.
Journalism, Publishing, & Media (20, 61, & 63)
All forms of modern media, from publishing, news, film, and TV, are taught through classes in these two buildings. Journalism and the school paper (The Sentinel) are housed in the Sentinel Building. Those using standard computers, such as desktop publishing, are taught in the Andrew Thompson Computer Center, while all the film and television related classes are handled in the Michael Smith Film School.
Classic Arts (62 & 66)
Most of the classic arts classes, like painting and sculpture, are taught in the Albert Osborn College of the Arts. Finished works and some larger projects are displayed and worked on in the Rebecca Thompson Art Center, which is also open to the public on occasion for gallery shows.
Performing Arts (60, 66, & 67)
With the exception of Film and TV classes, all performing art classes, from theater to dance, are handled through the James L Martin School of Performing Arts. Some small shows and events are practiced and performed in the Rebecca Thompson Art Center, while larger public productions and full theater experience classes are done through the Dave Brooks Theater.
Agriculture (77, 78, 79, 80, & 81)
The large Agricultural Complex houses all the buildings used to teach all aspects of farming, animal care, agriculture, and several of the natural biology classes. The complex is made up of Brosnen Hall, the Angus MacGyver Greenhouse, The Barn, The Stacks, The Shacks, and the fields. The barnyard, known as Albert's Field, is where much of the work and study is done. Warner Field is where the horses and large animals are allowed to run around. The Tennison-Sherman Fields are where most of the growing training and education is handled, and are not fenced in the same way as the other fields.
