The UNLV William F. Harrah College of Hospitality program is regarded as the premier program of its type anywhere in the world today. UNLV hired CSD Architects to design the new 93,500-square-foot Hospitality Hall building to reflect this highly elevated stature. The building embraces its hospitality roots and blends them with the rigors of an academic program. The inner atrium, lower plazas, upper balconies, and rooftop gardens provide students and faculty opportunities for daily serendipitous encounters. It also offers places to study in groups or individually, entertain, or relax. The interior of the building includes classrooms, computer labs, a teaching kitchen, a café, professional golf management program simulation labs, learning studios, specialty classrooms, offices, and administration areas. The exterior exudes a sense of permanence, individuality, and presence with the use of stone, steel, and glass on a campus of eclectic styles. It responds to its place, program, and climate.

The project is LEED Silver Certified.
