Local nameAnn and Robert H. Lurie Tower
LocationAnn Arbor, Michigan, USA

The Ann and Robert H. Lurie Tower, a memorial built in 1996 for Michigan alumnus Robert H. Lurie, is located on North Campus at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. It houses a 60-bell grand carillon, one of the university's two grand carillons; the other is housed in Burton Tower on Central Campus. These are two of only 23 grand carillons in the world.

The Lurie Tower was designed by Michigan alumnus Charles Moore, with structural engineering done by Robert M. Darvas Associates. The tower was dedicated in October 1996. A gift of the "Ann and Robert H. Lurie Family Foundation," it has 60 bells. Ann Lurie of Chicago donated $12 million in memory of her husband, Robert H. Lurie, to help fund the construction of North Campus buildings, including the bell tower. Completed in late 1995, the 167-foot tall tower is a significant landmark on North Campus.
