Hartung Hall

Science at Anderson University

Dedicated on October 24th, 1964, Hartung Hall is one of the largest buildings on campus. It holds classrooms, offices, and labs, including biology and chemistry labs, an acoustics lab, and an animal psychology lab. Before the construction of Hartung Hall, all labs and science departments had been housed in Old Main. Hartung Hall is also home to the Saint John’s Health System Teaching and Learning Nursing Complex. The building is named for Everett Hartung of Anderson’s Broadway Sales Company.

In 1993, Hartung was renovated and rededicated on the 16th of October. As part of a 75-million-dollar fundraising campaign that ended in 2000, the science labs were updated with new equipment, an extensive nursing core was constructed, and a new addition was built. The project added 300,000 square feet of classrooms and office space, including the Bible and Religion department offices. This new space consolidated the Bible and religion and the philosophy offices, which had previously been located in the School of Theology, Decker Hall, and Nicholson Library.
