Corby Hall, one of Notre Dame's oldest buildings, will be demolished in June and replaced with a new hall of similar design.

The yellow brick building is the traditional home of the congregation of Holy Cross priests, who live and work at the University.

The university says it was originally planning to renovate the old building, but realized that it was not feasible.

The new building is expected to be completed by the spring of 2020.

Today people are speaking out about the news. There are a lot of mixed feelings. While many are sad to see Corby Hall go, others understand why it's happening and some say the change is needed. Watch the full report from WSBT 22's Veronica Ortega in the video above for reactions.
