Jackson Hall
Jackson Hall’s unique architecture beautifully reflects its rich history. Once the main academic building of the Venard Maryknoll Preparatory College, Jackson Hall now houses the Murphy Memorial Library, our administrative offices, mail center, computer lab, science lab and most classrooms.

The Recreation Center
Completed in 2013, this 62,000-square-foot Recreation Center is open for student and public use. Highlights include a one-ninth-mile track, basketball courts, cardio rooms, stage, batting cage, classrooms, climbing wall, and weight and cardio rooms featuring Precor exercise equipment. Students gather here each weekday for chapel.

The Phelps Student Center
Named after long-time Clarks Summit University trustee Russell Phelps, the Phelps Student Center is a focal point of campus activity. It contains our gymnasium, training room, locker rooms, cafeteria, game room, snack bar and stage. Many student activities, athletic events, meals and theatrical productions take place in the student center.

The Residence Halls
Most of our undergraduate students live on campus in Clarks Summit University’s 12 residence halls. Intentionally designed to encourage positive relationship building, each three-floor hall is made up of three-bedroom, one-bath suites accommodating six students. Residence halls include a laundry room, a resident director’s apartment and three lounges where students can enjoy socializing, floor meetings, devotions and group study sessions.

Buckingham Hall
Clarks Summit University’s oldest building houses our Music Department. Besides its main classroom and faculty offices, Buckingham boasts several well-equipped practice rooms for musicians.

The Underground Café
Transformed from an old apple and tool storage shed to a trendy coffee shop, the Underground Café is a favorite among Clarks Summit University students and staff.
