Galbraith Hall

About named building

Occupied in September 1965 in Revelle College, Galbraith Hall was UC San Diego’s first central library. Today the building’s primary occupants are the Center for Library & Instructional Services (CLICS) and the department of theatre and dance. Galbraith Hall is also home to the central office for Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) which serves the student body by providing free, comprehensive, and confidential psychological counseling and mental health workshops. Formerly known as the Humanities/Undergraduate Library, the building was renamed in 1988 to honor John S. Galbraith for his invaluable contributions to the university as Chancellor and faculty member, as well as for his lifelong interest in libraries.
