Angell Hall is an academic building at the University of Michigan. It was previously connected to the University Hall building, which was replaced by Mason Hall and Haven Hall.[1] Angell Hall is named in honor of James Burrill Angell, who was the University's president from 1871-1909.

The Angell Hall Observatory is located on the fifth floor roof of Angell Hall.[2]

On March 24, 1965, Angell Hall was the site of the first teach-in protesting the Vietnam War. More than 3,000 people attended the all-night program of seminars, rallies and speeches held in response to the recent escalation of American involvement in the conflict.[3]
