About Scott Hall
The Sherman and Joyce Bowie Scott Hall, known as “Scott Hall,” was designed by OFFICE 52 Architecture to be as visually stimulating as it is essential to interdisciplinary research initiatives at Carnegie Mellon University. The building fits like a jigsaw piece into Carnegie Mellon's
Scott Hall houses the Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation as well as the Department of Biomedical Engineering, the Engineering Research Accelerator, the Disruptive Health Technologies Institute and the nanotechnology research facility.
Find Us on Campus
We are located in Scott Hall on the west side of Carnegie Mellon's Pittsburgh campus in between Hamerschlag and Wean Halls. Scott Hall is the glass building tucked in the corner. Once you locate the building and enter from the campus green space, you are on the 5th floor – and the main location of the Scott Institute.
For the Bosch Spark or the Dighe Conference Rooms, 5201 and 5129 respectively, proceed to the opposite side of the building, wrapping around the staircases. The Bosch Spark Conference Room will be in front of you; Dighe is to the right, at the end of the hallway around the corner to the left. If you are lost, call 412.268.4111.
Garage: We recommend the East Campus Garage on Forbes Avenue, which has its own Google Map address. The outdoor walk along the campus green space to Scott Hall via the map below will take about 10 minutes. There is an inside path, but you will need a guide or kind student to show you the way. Make sure they don’t take you to Scaife Hall. Two words: bread crumbs.
