LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – UNLV announced that Beam Hall, the site of a December 6, 2023 on-campus shooting that killed three professors and injured a fourth, will remain closed for the spring semester.

The announcement was made as part of the Rebel Recovery Program, a campuswide initiative that will begin to roll out this month, according to the President.

“Over the last few weeks, there have been many suggestions on ways to enhance safety and security, promote wellness and camaraderie, and engage our faculty, staff, and students to help our community recover,” Whitfield said. “That’s why we want to include as many people as possible in the Rebel Recovery effort.”

All classes previously scheduled for Beam Hall this spring have been reassigned to other classrooms on campus or to remote instruction, according to UNLV. Faculty and staff will have the option of working in their offices, working remotely, or using hoteling spaces in other buildings but Beam Hall will remain locked and accessible only to occupants and their personal guests for the semester.  Other services and programming typically in Beam Hall will be relocated for the semester.

The announcement also noted that plans have begun for a permanent campus memorial honoring the victims.
