Most of the 12 classrooms in Lucas Hall are designed in the "case classroom" style—tiered seating, in a U-shape configuration so that students and instructor may see each other as class discussion goes on.

Six large executive style conference rooms and three smaller internal meeting rooms provide options for faculty to use in gathering department colleagues and holding research seminars. The videoconferencing capabilities in these conference rooms allow scholarship to be presented not only to Leavey School peers, but other faculty on remote campuses around the world.
