Grover E. Murray Hall has been sited to have high exposure and connectivity to the proposed future pedestrian mall as identified in the Texas Tech campus master plan. The H-shaped building configuration uses the campus land area efficiently. This shape also creates the significant building mass needed to anchor the edges of the proposed pedestrian mall.
