Building History

This administration building commemorated the UW Presidency of Henry Schmitz, who served from 1952-1958. This building has long contained the Offices of the University Registrar, Minority Affairs, Student Affairs, Student Counseling Center, and the Financial Aid Office.

Building Notes

Schmitz Hall resembled Kallman McKinnell's well-known design for the Boston City Hall (1963-1968), which itself referred to earlier works by Le Corbusier, most notably his béton brut Couvent Sainte-Marie de La Tourette near Evreux, France (1956-1960).
