Joyce Building

The Joyce Building, named for esteemed professor emerita of Fashion, Sr. Mary Elizabeth Joyce, CCVI, is home to the School of Media and Design's Interior Design and Fashion Management programs. Fashion students practice their techniques and may take classes in the building’s two sewing labs, one outfitted with industry-standard equipment, including a Gerber Garment Technology System for pattern development. Interior design students have access to three designated drawing rooms, large-format 3D printers and access to computer-aided design and drafting (CADD), a technology for design and technical documentation, which replaces manual drafting with an automated process.

Renovated in 1998, the facility also houses the Watson Auditorium, a 135-seat lecture hall.
