Matthews Hall

Carrie Matthews Hall houses the nationally known Northlight Gallery and offices of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts photography faculty. Northlight Gallery presents photography exhibitions of contemporary and historical significance, and work by Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts School of Art photography students. The Center for the Study of Institutional Diversity, under the School of Human Evolution and Social Change, is also located in Matthews Hall.

At its dedication as a men's dormitory in 1920, the building was named A. J. Matthews Hall in honor of the distinguished Tempe Normal School president, Dr. Arthur John Matthews. Ten years later, it was renamed to honor the president's wife (fitting since by then it was a women's dorm), allowing the new library building to bear Dr. Matthew's name as a tribute to his 30 years as president.
