Marquez Hall (pronounced “Marcus”) was completed in 2012 and was named for Timothy and Bernadette Marquez, generous contributors to Mines. Twenty years after graduating in 1980, Timothy Marquez realized he owed a lot of his success to Mines, so he gave back by making the new petroleum engineering building a reality. he is dedicated to making sure that low-income students, particularly Hispanic students, finish high school and have the opportunity to go on to college—and have access to a Mines education.

The $25 million facility houses the Petroleum Engineering Department and features 60,000 square feet of customizable classrooms and research and teaching laboratories, including a multipurpose visualization classroom to support interdisciplinary collaboration between Petroleum Engineering, Geology and Geophysics departments. Smart classrooms are equipped with wireless networking and interactive audio-visual technology, and informational displays educate campus visitors about the petroleum industry.
