History of Richard H. Barry Hall

Richard H. Barry Hall became home to NDSU’s College of Business and the Department of Agriculture and Applied Economics in 2009. Richard H. Barry Hall encompasses the former Pioneer Mutual Life Insurance building and a 75,000-square foot addition in downtown Fargo. Constructed in 1925, the original building was completely renovated to provide faculty and students a world-class environment for transformational learning and research.

Barry Hall is home to the nation’s first university lab dedicated to the marketing of agriculture commodities. The trading room is equipped with state-of-the-art technology for students and faculty to monitor and analyze markets in real time. The building also features 14 classrooms, 12 conference rooms, a 284-seat auditorium, student study areas, a branch of the NDSU library, a coffee shop, and six-story faculty office building.
