David Allison was the Partner-in-Charge of Royce Hall. The design is based on that of the Italian Romanesque, San Ambrogio Church, Milan.

According to Gebhard and Winter (Los Angeles, An Architectural Guide, 1994) Royce Hall and Powell Library were "...to convey the image of UCLA as a Lombardian hilltop town." (p. 116)

John Carl Warnecke and Associates (led by Charles Warren Oakley) renovated Royce Hall in 1983-1984 to improve its seismic resilience.
