Introducing Rettner Hall

Designed as a hub for the arts, sciences, and engineering on the River Campus, Ronald Rettner Hall for Media Arts and Innovation features 18,900 square feet of space and facilities for students to gain both practical skills and theoretical understanding of digital technology. Named in honor of Ronald Rettner, a University trustee, entrepreneur, business executive, developer, and advocate of higher education whose lead gift made the building possible, the hall was formally dedicated during Meliora Weekend.
