The schools of Communication Studies and Visual Communication Design share the space in the modernized, four-floor building. The May 4 Visitors Center also calls Taylor Hall home and will reopen with normal hours on Sept. 5.Pictured is the newly renovated Taylor Hall.

The School of Digital Sciences, which joined the College of Communication and Information in July, will spend the 2017-2018 academic year in Taylor Hall, as well.

Updates to the interior of Taylor Hall include additional classroom, laboratory and studio space to meet the growing size of the communication studies and visual communication design programs. The internal transformation includes a signature gallery, updated technology, centralized advising in Room 101, photography and design studios, furnished lounge spaces, improved restroom facilities and brightly colored décor – all of which is to ensure the programs remain competitive now and in the future.

Telephone and fax numbers for the schools remain the same.
