Uris Hall

 

ADDRESS: 109 Tower Rd Ithaca, NY 14850

Uris Hall is the social science building for the College of Arts and Sciences at Cornell with the Departments of Economics, Sociology, Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies (FGSS, formerly Women's Studies), and Psychology. Also located within the building is the Western Societies Program offices, the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, a 428 seat auditorium used for classes as well as by Cornell Cinema, psychology labs, and part of the Cornell Brain Collection. Uris Hall was built of cortan steel, an alloy which should turn a bluish yellow color over time. The building has not reached its target color yet due to the low concentration of pollutants in the local atmosphere which act as catalysts for the necessary reactions to change the steel's color. The brain collection houses the brain of John Rulloff, a notorious murderer born in 1819 and the namesake of Rulloff's bar and grill in Collegetown, as well as the brain of Burt Wilder, the originator of the collection.
