Our Library provides print and non-print materials, electronic resources, audiovisual equipment, and research programs for the institution’s faculty and students. There are more than 200,000 print and non-print materials in the collection. Because Spalding is a member of the Kentuckiana Metroversity and the Association of Independent Kentucky Colleges and Universities, patrons have both in-library access and remote access to extensive collections and services, many of which include a large percentage of full-text documents, from other statewide higher educational institutions. Over 3 million books and 20,000 journal volumes held by the consortium may be accessed via a personal visit or daily courier. The four-floor building contains 58,250 square feet, with a seating capacity of 739.

The library is home to a large computing facility conveniently located on the main floor and available during library hours. Study facilities include large, loud study rooms for group interaction, small rooms for private study, private offices for faculty research, and locked study areas for graduate students.

The Mansion Complex
The historic Tompkins-Buchanan-Rankin Mansion is located at 851 South Fourth Street. The Mansion Complex houses the College of Education, the School of Liberal Studies, the School of Creative and Professional Writing, the School of Professional Psychology and the Applied Behavior Analysis program, as well as the Spalding University art studio. In addition, the Learning Resource Center is also located in this iconic structure.

The 851 Mansion, the heart of the Mansion Complex, is a historic and fascinating treasure. Since the establishment of the Louisville campus in 1920, Spalding University has occupied this impressive structure, designed by prominent Louisville architect Henry Whitestone. Interesting features of this building include the stained glass window above the original entrance, the original three-story staircase of hand-carved walnut and a stained glass skylight. It was designated a Kentucky Landmark in 1973 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977. The mansion is open to the public for free self-guided tours when the University is in session. The elegant drawing room of the Mansion is a gathering place for students and is used for official receptions by the Spalding University Board of Trustees as well as our academic leaders. Other rooms are used as conference and meeting rooms on a regular basis.

The facility features a variety of four- and eight-person suites, each equipped with a shared full-size kitchen, dining area, and living space that includes modern furnishings and a 42-inch flat screen television. An added bonus and resident-favorite are the ‘chalk’ walls--covered with chalkboard paint upon which students can leave messages and create art. The industrial-style structure, with its brick exterior and interior exposed beams and duct work, reflects the growing trend of urban warehouse renovations in Louisville.

The Spalding University Center
The Spalding University Center, at 824 South Fourth Street, is located across Fourth Street from the Mansion Complex, and houses the auditorium, gymnasium, ballroom, and the Department of Athletics. World famous boxer, humanitarian, and Olympic gold medalist Muhammad Ali began his career at Spalding University, training in this building. In 1957, library director Sister James Ellen Huff hired a quiet 15-year old boy, then known as Cassius Marcellus Clay, to work in the school’s library, dusting bookshelves, mopping floors, and carrying around books for 60 cents an hour. When he finished his daily duties, he would cross the street and practice in the "Old Service Club" gym, so named since the building was used as a USO for military personnel during World War II and the Korean War. Today, the Spalding University Center is still home to our NCAA Division III men's and women's athletic programs. Spalding University is a member of the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.

Teilhard Hall
Spalding Alumni remember Teilhard Hall as the long-time home to several academic programs of the University. With the opening of the new, state-of-the-art Kosair for Kids College of Health and Natural Sciences on the corner of Third and Breckinridge Streets in November 2008, Teilhard Hall is now home to the Department of Information Technology and additional classrooms for the Creative Arts program.
