Take a virtual tour of spaces in Simpson Hall!  The rooms filmed in these tours are typical of the spaces provided but actual room layout and configuration may vary.

Simpson Hall is named after Mr. William B. Simpson and his wife Mrs. Marilyn M. Simpson, both great contributors and supporters of Loyola University Chicago. As a result of their continuous and generous support, the Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA) also has a lecture room named after Mr. and Mrs. Simpson. Mr. and Mrs. Simpson were also honored with the Honorary Loyola Alumni Award in the 1980s. Simpson Hall opened in 1991.
