Southern Utah University Bristlecone Hall

Southern Utah University’s Bristlecone Hall is a 90,000 square foot multi-discipline academic building designed to meet the current and future needs of the growing student body. The new academic building consists of 26 classrooms, two auditoriums, faculty offices, large meeting spaces, program and support space, and study areas, and a new home for arts, film, and photography departments which includes a film studio, digital media labs, and a darkroom for film development. A first floor study lounge features a learning stair with views out to the new landscaping and campus green.

Transparency is a key highlight filling the hallways, classrooms, workspaces, and stairwells with an ample amount of natural daylight, helping with ease of wayfinding and providing energy efficiency.
