Comstock Hall is a building of Cornell University. It was built in 1911 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1] It was designed by Green & Wicks.

The "old" Comstock Hall was built by New York State or 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.
