Skinner-Jones Hall, completed in 1972, was one of the four original buildings on the University of North Florida (UNF) Campus. The hall houses 13 departments in approximately 69,000 net square feet with an enclosed project area of approximately 113,000 gross square feet. The Repurposing Skinner-Jones Hall project provided state-of-the-art teaching classrooms, teaching laboratories, research laboratories, faculty offices, administrative offices and associated support space to meet the current and 5 year projected growth needs for Programs within the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Computing, Engineering and Construction, the Brooks College of Health, Enrollment Services and the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs.
The $24 million construction project was accomplished in 2 phases to allow occupancy to portions of the existing building throughout construction. The project was completed in December 2017 and opened for the start of classes in January 2018.
UNF is committed to building environmentally responsible buildings. The Repurposing Skinner-Jones Hall project achieved LEED Silver Certification from the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).
