Dineen Hall Ground Breaking

The College of Law Breaks Ground for Dineen Hall

Syracuse University broke ground on May 10 for Dineen Hall, the landmark building that will become the home of the Syracuse University College of Law.

The Dineen family gave the University a $15 million naming gift in 2010 to honor their parents, College of Law graduates Robert Emmet Dineen L'24 and Carolyn Bareham Dineen L'32. The site was dedicated on Nov. 5, 2010.

The 200,000 square-foot, five-story building will be constructed on the site of the Raynor parking lot, on the SU campus' western edge and immediately west of the College of Law's current buildings, E. I. White Hall and Winifred MacNaughton Hall. Continue reading here.
