Luddy Hall opened to students and faculty Jan. 8, the first day of the spring semester.
The state-of-the-art facility, which broke ground for construction in 2015, will serve as a center for the IU School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering. The building features a 1,360-square-foot skylight and a 160-seat collaborative auditorium, according to a 2015 IU press release.
James Shea, senior director of planning and communications for the department, said the guiding architectural principle for the building's design was "share the light," accounting for its many windows and white color scheme.
The building will be officially dedicated on April 13.
