Glenda Pittman and Charles Jerry Owens Hall
The Glenda Pittman and Charles Jerry Owens Hall, Winthrop's newest general-use classroom facility, is a 32,200 square-foot building that stays true to Winthrop’s devotion to close interaction between students and faculty. Adding to the variety of academic spaces at Winthrop, Owens Hall offers two spaces accommodating up to 100 students to allow certain classes to meet concurrently for special events, in addition to 16 smaller classrooms targeted to Winthrop’s growing student body. A computer lab, two conference rooms and a student lounge round out the $5 million facility, with all classrooms equipped with ‘smart’ technology. Owens Hall was damaged by a March 6, 2010 fire and reopened in spring 2011.
