Stephens Hall, easily identified by its clock tower, is one of the original buildings on campus and today serves as home to the College of Business and Economics.
Constructed in 1912 when the state of Maryland purchased 80 acres in Towson, Stephens Hall was originally the Administration Building. The architect, Douglas H. Thomas Jr., modeled the imposing Jacobean-style building on Blickling Hall, an English manor house once home to Anne Boleyn, the second of King Henry VIII’s wives. Thomas also designed Baltimore’s Belvedere Hotel and the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus.
Located in the 7900 block of York Road, today’s Stephens Hall is home to the College of Business & Economics. The Stephens Hall Theatre, located on the second floor, hosts lectures, concerts, dance and theatre performances, as well as community events. The proscenium-style theatre seats 680 people.
