Comstock Hall (Ithaca, New York)
The "old" Comstock Hall was built by New York State for the Entomology Department, but in the 1980s, it was sold to Cornell so that mainframe computers could be relocated from Langmuir Laboratory. As a result, a new, state-funded Entomology Department building was named Comstock Hall in 1985, and the historic building has been renamed the Computing and Communications Center. The building was named in honor of John Henry Comstock.
Comstock Hall hosts many departments. On the first floor the Investigative Biology Teaching Laboratories provide hands-on biology education to undergraduates. The Department of Entomology is hosted on floors 2-6 with a rich Insect Collection on the second floor. A reference to Comstock Hall was made in The Office between Andy Bernard and Dwight Schrute.
