Annette Caldwell Simmons Hall


Students in library

The new Annette Caldwell Simmons Hall will provide a visible and functional presence on SMU’s Dallas campus for the Annette Caldwell Simmons School of Education and Human Development, consolidating programs that have been housed in a variety of classrooms and offices. The building, positioned prominently on the University’s northeast corner, is designed to be welcoming and inviting to the many constituencies who will benefit from the school. The facility will include classrooms, research laboratories, faculty and administrative offices and student support areas. With the construction of this new building, in addition to our facility in Plano, the school will have a visible presence on both of SMU’s North Texas campuses.
