Langton Hall


2450 sw jefferson way, Corvallis, Oregon

The Men’s Gymnasium, built in 1915 and named Langton Hall in the early 1970s, was designed by John Bennes. In addition to its use as a gym, the building was also used for commencement activities until Gill Coliseum opened in 1950. Today it houses the Intramural Sports offices, the department of exercise and sport science, and is used for physical education classes. Did you know? The bronze sculpture is called “The Runner “ (1920) – it was one of the first pieces of artwork on campus.
