Robert A. Johnston Hall (or simply Johnston Hall) is a Gothic-ornamented building in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The hall houses the J. William & Mary Diederich College of Communication at Marquette University. It was designed by Milwaukee architect Charles D. Crane, completed in 1907 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.
Johnston Hall once housed all departments of the university with the exception of the medical department. The building first opened to the Jesuit community at Marquette in 1907, only a few weeks prior to Robert Johnston's death. The College of Journalism moved into Johnston Hall in 1975 and later merged with Marquette's Colleges of Speech, Performing Arts and Communication to form what is now the J. William & Mary Diederich College of Communication.
Marquette University Student Media is housed in the hall.
